GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



REPORT ON THE BAPTIST ORPHANAGES 

The year 1956 was another busy one at the Baptist Children's Home. We 
were able to admit to our care only one-fifth of the children from whom applica- 
tion was made. The question often arises, "How many dependent children 
should North Carolina Baptists provide for?" Probably an exact answer is 
impossible. Last year we served a total of 751, an increase of 15 over the year 
before. Of these, 126 were supported in Foster Boarding Homes. Perhaps a 
conservative estimate is that Baptists of North Carolina should serve about 
1,000 children annually. 

The Indian Orphanage at Pembroke in Robeson County cares for fifteen 
to twenty children each year. Since the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association in 
which it is located cannot adequately support this orphanage, considerable 
sentiment has developed among North Carolina Baptists for admitting it as a 
part of the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina, Inc. 

Since our report last year a new Swimming Pool has been constructed at 
Kennedy Home, and a New Cottage for boys is under construction. Another 
Boys Cottage is badly needed at Mills Home. These new buildings are erected 
with special gifts and bequests. 

"Charity and Children" continues to serve North Carolina Baptists in 
promoting the Kingdom of God. It not only keeps our people informed about 
their Child Care, but it also strives to give a little clearer insight into all 
phases of our Denominational work. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT TO THE ANNUAL ASSOCIATIONAL MEETING 

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we come to make this annual report to 
the association. 

On behalf of the entire staff of associational Sunday school officers, let 
me pledge our adherence to the ideal that our task is one of service. Our only 
purpose is to help the churches through proper use of their Sunday schools 
to reach the lost for Christ and lead the saved to acknowledge the Lordship 
of Christ in daily living. 

This year our association is reporting 39 churches and 39 Sunday schools. 

Achievements this past year include: 

1. 14 churches observed January Bible Study. 

2. 32 Vacation Bible schools and mission Vacation Bible schools were 
held. 

We respectfully make the following recommendations: 

1. That we adopt for this year the theme, "Ye Are Witnesses." 

2. That we major in our Sunday school work on more people in Bible 
study, more effective Bible teaching, and more people won, developed, 
and enlisted. 

3. That the Sunday school leadership of each church in our association be 
urged to: 

Establish a goal of 125 enrolled in Sunday school for each 100 church 
members. 

Adopt a goal of 1 baptism for each 8 church members. 
Provide a training program which would include January Bible Study 
Week, Preparation Week, and "Operation Home Study." 
Start a new Sunday school this year. 

Move up the pattern of organization by starting new classes and de- 
partments. 

4. That the associational Sunday school leadership be urged to: 
Enlist a complete organization. 

At a clinic, train the associational Sunday school officers and plan the 
help for the churches, a year in advance. 

Plan and direct associational group training schools, (set date). 
Provide regular meetings for training and inspiration of the Sunday 
school workers in the churches, (set dates). 



10 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

N. C. BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Baptist Hospital is dedicated to the service of tliose needing medical 
care, the educating of young people in various branches of medical service, 
and giving a Christian witness in North Carolina and throughout the world. 

This year a new record has been set. 15,784 patients received a total of 
123.000 days of bed care. There were 61,000 visits to the out-patient clinics and 
60,000 to the private clinics. Patients were from 92 counties over the state. 
These represented twenty-five fields of medicine and surgery, requiring special- 
ists and special equipment. It provides medical service of the highest order 
for all our people regardless of their financial circumstances. 

The new Cobalt machine is in operation, treating about 35 cancer patients 
each day. A very fine plastic surgeon and a skilled heart surgeon are perform- 
ing some of the most difficult operations known. 

Persons wishing to go to the Baptist Hospital for treatment should get an 
appointment in advance, giving accurate information as to the nature of the 
patient's problem and whether he needs to go through the out-patient clinic, 
rather than as a private or full-pay patient. The out-patient clinic is open to 
persons who are not able to pay the full cost of their medical care. In cases 
of emergency, or need for immediate hospitalization a local physician should 
contact the .hospital in order to give the medical information needed before 
arrangements can be made. When a person is unable to pay his full hospital 
bill when he leaves the hospital, definite arrangements should be made about 
it when he is admitted rather than waiting until later. This will .help to avoid 
misunderstandings and hardships. 

A total of $1,731.72 was contributed through Mother's Day offerings in our 
Association. Thirty-seven of the 39 churc'^e- ,^ad sent in their contributions as 
of Sept. 11, 1957. Our goal had been $2,0C0.00 from Green River as a part in 
the overall goal of $200,000.00 throughout the state. However, we were a little 
ahead of 1956, when we gave $1,693.42. Let us move up, and out, and on, to 
glorify Christ. 

1957 REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The printed page is more powerful than bombs and bullets to conquer 
the minds and hearts of men. Never before has so much reading matter been 
before the eyes of the people, as today. Baptists, like others, are often tempted 
to stop, look, buy and read — from the stream of poison that flows from the 
many publishers bent on selling more and more of their unclean books, maga- 
zines, and periodicals, to enrich themselves as they care little for the evil 
effects of their wares. 

In the year 1830, N. C. Baptists organized themselves into the Baptist 
State Convention. The Constitution stated that the main purpose was "the 
promotion of missions, education, social service, and the distribution of sound 
religious literature." Shortly afterward, in 1833, the Biblical Recorder was 
founded to help carry out these aims. For over 123 years, it has served N. C. 
Baptists. No Baptist home or mail-box is beyond the reach of the Recorder 
each week, since it is always sent by mail directly to each subscriber. The 
Baptist paper ought to go into every Baptist home. The present circulation of 
the Recorder is nearly 62,000 each week. Pastors, Recorder representatives, 
and others, have been faithful in securing renewals and new subscribers in 
the Churches; we appreciate their fine service. 

The Recorder has three subscription plans: Single subscription is $2.50 
a year. Club plan, with 4 or more subscriptions, $2.00 a year. The every- Family 
Plan, with one subscription to each resident family or home in the church, is 
only $1.50 a year. 

We sincerely urge ail pastors, associational workers, Sunday School super- 
intendents, teachers and officers, State workers, W.M.U., Training Union and 
Brotherhood members and others, to promote in every possible way the every 
Family Plan or at least a good-sized Recorder club in every Church. No Bap- 
tist can keep well informed about the work of 'his Church and denomination 
unless he reads his State Baptist paper. 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION _J1 

REPORT OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE GREEN RIVER ASSOCIATION 

The report of our Brotherhood work in the association is the same old 
story — we are far from the goal of a Brotherhood in every church. However, 
we now have ten Brotherhoods which is more than we have ever had before. 
At our last associational meeting we elected officers to carry on the work of 
the Brotherhood and we believe this will be a great help in the work. 

I would like to remind all pastors and laymen of their real need for a 
Brotherhood in their churches because of the great responsibility we have as 
we, the men, take over the R.A.'s. We believe that the churches with Brother- 
hood organizations will be able to do a much better work with these boys than 
the churches who do not. 

Again we would plead with all the men of the association to join with 
men throughout the Southern Baptist Convention, as these ten churches and 
230 members have, in carrying on the Lord's work through the Baptist Brother- 
hood. 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

We continue to recognize in the Training Union one of the important 
functions of our Baptist churches. Every Baptist church ought to have a pro- 
gram of training for its membership. Never befoee in history have we seen so 
clearly the need for trained Christians. The Training Union seeks through its 
program of study and activity to make church members useful church mem- 
bers. 

Fourteen of the churches in the Green River Association do not have 
Training Union organizations. We feel that these fourteen churches would be 
better churches if they participated in the program of training sponsored by 
our convention. 

Commendation should go again this year to each Director, Pastor, and to 
every Training Union member of every church for a job well done. The 
churches of the Green River Association have been strengthened because of 
your efforts. 

Our records show that we had twenty-four Training Unions in our associa- 
tion at the beginning of 1957 with one new Training Union being organized 
during the year. Our total Training Union enrollment was 1961. During this 
past year, 747 study course awards were given — almost 200 more than the year 
before — with every church with a Training Union requesting at least one or 
more awards. 

Our four mass meetings were well attended. At our "M" night service at 
the Round Hill church we had 397 present, at the tournament meeting at 
Calvary, 296, Youth Night at Bill's Creek, 77, and at our Conference meetings 
held at Piedmont and Columbus, a total attendance of 272. 

The Training Union program of our state convention moves forward. 
Records show that last year was the best year in many respects — enrollment, 
attendance at assemblies, and the number of awards attained by members. 

Truly we can rejoice in our achievements of this past year. But we can- 
not stop there. We must move FORWARD. Let us resolve that during this year 
we will do even greater things as we engage in our training program for the 
Master.

REPORT ON EVANGELISM 

Evangelism has made Southern Baptists what they are today and evange- 
lism will maintain Southern Baptists. The primacy of soul-winning is the num- 
ber one prerogative. Jesus says, "Ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jeru- 
salem, and in Judea and Samaria and the uttermost parts of the earth." (Acts 
1:8). Inescapable is the responsibility upon us to reach the lost in our com- 
munities and throughout the world. Only evangelism can keep the spiritual 
fervor of the churches raised to a high pitch which is necessary to carry out 
the commandments of our Lord when he said, "Go ye into all the world and 
preach the gospel to every creature." 

Billy Graham says that God has given unto Southern Baptists a great pro- 
gram of evangelism. Let us strive to reach the evangelism Standard of Ex- 
cellence in the Green River Association: 

1. A chairman of evangelism. 

2. Every church in the association reporting baptisms. 

3. Fifty per cent of the churches in the association having two revivals 
every year, and every church at least one revival. 

4. Eighty per cent of the churches in the association participating in a 
simultaneous crusade. 

5. Fifty per cent of the churches in the association using their evangelism 
church councils. 

REPORT ON STATE, HOME & FOREIGN MISSIONS 

In John 4:35 Jesus said, "Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they 
are white already unto harvest." In Matt. 13:38 He said, "The field is the world." 
And in Matt. 28:19, "Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in 
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." These Scrip- 
tures reveal beyond any doubt where we are to go and what we are to do. 

Baptists, through their State, Home, and Foreign Mission Boards are en- 
deavoring to go into all the world. 

God-called, dedicated men and women are carrying out the three-fold 
ministry of Jesus by preaching the Gospel to the lost, teaching believers to 
observe all that He commanded and by ministering to those who need help. 

The field is large, the workers are comparatively few, the need is great. 
May I urge all Green River Baptist to: Lift up your eyes and look; lift up your 
heart and pray; lift upyourhandsand give; lift up your feet and go. 

MISSIONARY'S REPORT 

During the past year it has been my privilege to visit and to serve in 38 
of the 39 churches of the Association. As far as activity is concerned it has been 
a very buys year, as the following statistics will show: 

During the summer I worked in 11 of the 32 Vacation Bible Schools held in 
our Churhes. During the year I helped in 18 weeks of Training Courses, or- 
ganizing 1 new Training Union. Five of these were Sunday School Group Train- 
ing Schools held in the 5 areas of the Associational territory — ^Rutherfordton, 
Union Mills, Mill Spring, Pleasant Grove (R) area, and Cooper's Gap. These 5 
Group Schools reached the largest number of churches and individuals that 
has ever been reached in a training effort. It was my privilege to preach in 
one 8-day revival, and to assist in 3 ordination services for preachers and 
deacons. Preached 58 times. Conducted the Morning Devotions Program over 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 13 

Radio Station WBBO one week and had approximately 50 Religious News 
Broadcasts during the year. 

In doing the work of the Association it was necessary to attend several 
conferences outside of our area: A one-week Associational Missions Conference 
at Caswell; Home Mission Week at Ridgecrest (special conference for Asseocia- 
tional Missionaries on the 30,000 new churches program); Vacation Bible 
School Clinic at Fruitland; Annual Session of the Baptist State Convention; 
Southern Baptist Convention in Chicago; 1 Associational Sunday School Of- 
ficers and 1 Training Union Officers' Planning Clinic. 

We also shared with the other churches of the state through our work. I 
assisted the State Sunday School Department in 7 one-night Training-Planning 
Clinics for Associational Sunday School Officers, taught in the Sandy Run 
Central Training School, preached in revival services in a church of the neigh- 
boring Association. 

In all I participated in over 400 different services during the year. In the 
performance of my duties I traveled over 25,000 miles.

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

The Associational Executive Committee met 4 times during the year. At 
the January meeting held at Calvary Rev. R. F. Mayberry offered his resigna- 
tion as Superintendent of Evangelism. Rev. Lloyd Garner was elected to 
succeed Mr. Mayberry. Rev. R. P. Hamby announced at this meeting that 
Round Hill would be host to the association for the mid-year meeting and it 
was voted to go to Round Hill. Rev. Glenn Scoggins was elected to succeed 
Dale Hooper as Intermediate Department Leader of the Sunday School, and 
Mrs. Howard Bennett was elected as Superintendent of Nursery Department. 

The April meeting was held at Round Hill. It was voted to buy a mimeo- 
graph machine for the association. The committee voted to give $25.00 to the 
Training Union groups of the association. 

The July meeting was held at the First Church of Rutherfordton. Mr. 
Robert Hensley, treasurer of the association, presented the budget for the 
next year. Motion made to accept and budget was approved. 

Rev. H. V. Ray made a motion that the committee go on record in opposi- 
tion to dancing at our Baptist colleges. A. G. Brooks, Lloyd Garner and H. V. 
Ray were appointed to draft resolutions and forward to the various institutions. 
Rev. James E. Branch was elected to fill an existing vacancy on the Constitu- 
tional Change Committee. 

The September meeting was held at Round Hill. At this meeting our re- 
quest for $972.00 from the State Convention was approved for use in our 
Associational Missionary Program. 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY REPORT 

The woman's Missionary Union has lost a member of its family — the boys. 
At the first of October we turned over the RA's to the Brotherhood. We hope 
the organization will continue to grow and grow missionary minded. 

Last year the WMU had its regular meetings: the leadership institute, the 
mission study institute, the annual meeting, which met with the Columbus 
church. 

We seek through Woman's Missionary Union to lead our members to 
read. We encourage them to read their respective magazines, and to read The 
Commission, the state paper, and Baptist Home Missions as well as mission 
study books during the year. 

We seek to teach stewardship of time, service, and money. We have a 
Prayer League for those who cannot attend the meetings. The members, men 
or women, pray for the missionaries on the prayer calendar each day. Effort 
is made to get our active members to pray for our missionaries also, as well 
as for the lost in our midst. 

Many of our societies contribute 1009r to the Co-operative Program, but 
all contribute to it. Through our special offerings we likewise support the work 
of the general convention. Last year we gave $3,385.24 to the Lottie Moon 
Christmas Offering, and $1,375.41 for the Annie Armstrong Offering. All so- 
cieties except two contributed to the State Mission Offering, but since that was 
made as one offering with the church and Sunday school, the amounts were 
not reported. 

In our association we have thirty-nine churches twenty-five of which have 
one or more WMU organization. We are far behind our opportunity in organiz- 
ing Sunbeam bands and YWA's. If the pastors of the churches would en- 
courage the women in their churches in a missionary effort, perhaps the re- 
maining fourteen churches could have organizations in them. Phillippians 4:3 
says: "I entreat thee also, true yoke fellow, help those women which labored 
with me in the gospel." If the men, and especially the pastors, would follow 
this suggestion of Paul's, perhaps the women could put forth more missionary 
effort. 

We have five new organizations to report. One of these is a missionary 
society, two are GA's, and two are Sunbeam bands. 

May we go forward to carry the message of Christ to the ends of the earth 
beginning at home.

REPORT OF THE MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

1. Our committee members have held several regular monthly meetings, 
with a view to fostering and furthering the mission spirit in every realm of our 
society and in every area of our Associatonal life. 

2. Very early in the year our committee recommended, to our executive 
committee of the Association, and such recommendation was unanimously 
adopted, that our Association engage in a full scale School of Missions some 
time during the year 1960. 

3. Our committee approved the purchase of a mimeograph machine for 
use by our missionary in his publicity and promotion work. 

4. Whereas nineteen centuries have been consumed in the making of 
some 800,000,000 Christians, Russian Materialistic and Godless Communism has 
advanced on the earth at the rapid rate of making 900,000,000 Communists in 
a short period of 40 years. This is alarming and calls for much planning, pray- 
ing and witnessing, on the part of all Christians to capture our world for Christ. 

5. We would urge upon all mission-minded, pastors, leaders and workers, 
that we keep our eyes ever open to opportunities that may present themselves 
for mission expansion in the area of our Association. Industry is fast moving 
Southward, and each such move affords ample and ripe opportunities for the 
organization of mission Sunday Schools and missionary Baptist Churches. 

6. Our Missionary, Brother Henry Powell, has traveled some 24,000 miles 
in the advancement of all the work in our 39 churches. He has conducted many 
Vacation Bible Schools, preached for the pastors as opportunity afforded, 
supplied for pastor-less churches, conducted a very helpful Religious News 
Broadcast over Station W.B.B.O.; each Saturday morning, assisted in the ordi- 
nation of one minister and several deacons, taug'ht in a number of training 
schools, visited and worked with all the 39 churches, save one, in the 52 Sun- 
days, conducted a very helpful V.B. School clinic, and organized at least one 
Training Union. He edits and distributes monthly The Green River News 
Bulletin. 

7. The Missions Committee join heartily in the recommendation by the 
Executive Committee that the salary of the missionary be raised to help him 
live at least comfortably in keeping with the fast advancing inflation of our 
monetary system. 

8. We also urge that the Association look with favor upon a plan to help 
our Missionary enter the Social Security plan now available to all ministers 
and full time Christian workers. 

9. Our committee have studied a proposal that our Association shall some 
time in the future make a purchase of the Mullen Bible School property Which 
includes more than 50 acres of land, and some six buildings, located near 
Bill's Creek Church in upper Rutherford County. This would make an ideal 
Summer Camp for the Youth and other organizations of our churches. This 
property is available at a price worthy of our consideration. 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 17 

REPORT ON THE ALLIED CHURCH LEAGUE 

The Allied Church League is a united effort by most of the demoninations 
in our state to combat the liquor, wine and beer traffic. Our Baptist State Con- 
vention pays more than any other denomination to its support. The Methodists 
are next. 

There has been little change in the Wet and Dry status the past year. Dry 
counties now, 70, wet 30. Counties in which no wine is legally sold, 52, wet 48. 
Counties in which beer is sold legally, or licensed by law, 50, wet 50. 

Eight municipalities now have legal liquor, or A.B.C. stores, two being 
allowed to vote, in dry counties, by the last Legislature. Clinton in Sampson 
County and Southport, near Caswell Baptist Asembly. As a rule the rural sec- 
tions and small towns vote dry, larger towns, wet. 

Last Saturday, October 12th, Lee County voted down legal whiskey, wine 
and beer after a hard fight by our dry leaders. In Sanford, the largest town in 
Lee County, the wets won 2 out of 4 precincts while the county voted down 
liquor, wine and beer by small majorities. 

The Allied Church League is doing much to enlighten our people of the 
evils of strong drink and the unlawful, or illegal tactics of the wets. 

Our biggest job is our liquor dominated Legislature where liquor flowed 
free to several members of the Legislature. The Drys were rebuffed and 
spurned at every turn during the last session while the Wets got practically all 
they asked for. Petitions signed by nearly 300,000 good citizens from all parts 
of N. C. asking for a State-wide referendum were turned down. State-wide ref- 
erendum, bill never got out of the committee. 

This situation challenges all sober minded and temperance lovers in our 
state. We must work, pray and give to the cause of Temperance. The Wets have 
unlimited funds to carry on their propaganda while the Drys do not have suf- 
ficient funds to do what they should. Our fine monthly magazine. Tomorrow, 
has been suspended for lack of funds. 

Some of our church members have a "Wish Bone" on this temperance 
question where they should have a "Backbone." 

Let every church have a Temperance Sunday and Commitment Day on 
December 1, 1957, when each member should be asked to sign a pledge to not 
drink any intoxicating beverages. 

REPORT ON THE HOME FOR THE AGING 

This, the seventh year of operation of the Baptist Homes for the Aging, 
has been the greatest year of expansion, thanks to the Lord and North Caro- 
lina Baptists. The new building was opened on June 13. The new building in- 
creased the facilities to 112 residents, counting those at Resthaven and the 
Albemarle Home. It also adds a half million dollars to the value of the assets of 
the Homes. 

Another forward step was taken in July when the Board of Trustees voted 
unanimously to accept a gift of $50,000 and land on which to build a Home in 
Eastern Carolina, for 40 residents, bringing the total to 150 total residents. 

To date a total of $85,000 has been received from the February special day 
offering. This is an average of 10c per North Carolina Baptist. 

The challenge facing the Homes is to pay for the new building. $100,000 
was borrov/ed to complete and equip the new building. With all North Carolina 
Baptists responding with a generous special day offering in February, 1958, 
and with other special contributions, it should be paid within the year 1958. 

The residents and all connected with the Homes are deeply grateful for 
the support in the past and thank evsry one for your loyalty and support. 



18 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOUR 

The Baptist Hour, official radio broadcast of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention, is now in its sixteenth year on the air. It has grown in this period from 
a quarterly appearance on eleven radio stations to weekly broadcast on 440 
stations in 34 states and several foreign countries. The program is produced on 
recording tape and distributed to these outlets. 

We urge upon our Green River Association and all of our people to listen 
to these broadcast. Check your local papers for time and station. WBBO carries 
the program each Sunday at 12:30 p. m. WSPA Spartanburg, each Sunday at 
7:30 a. m. 

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

"The Bible Speaks Today" is not just a slogan. It is the experience of 
millions of people around the world. It is a challenge to action. The Bible must 
speak to more people in this Southern Baptist "World Missions Year — and all 
the years ahead. 

If the people of the world are to know Jesus Christ, the one hope of men 
and the nations, they must have the Bible. 

Each person must have the Bible in his own language because it speake to 
his heart as no other language can speak. 

The Bible is the essential tool of missions and evangelism. The missionary 
uses it in all his work. The Bible itself is a missionary. It can go where the 
human missionary cannot go. It can stay when he must leave — and keep on 
speaking to a man's heart. 

The American Bible Society helps missionaries to translate the Bible. It 
publishes without note or comment and distributes without profit, usually be- 
low cost. For the Blind it supplies Scriptures in raised-letter systems and on 
Talking Book records. 

During 1956 the American Bible Society 

— distributed throughout the world more than 15 million volumes of 
Scriptures. 

— ^^supplied over 13,000 Bibles and other Scriptures to Hungarian refugees 
coming to the U.S.A. and joined in supplying many more to refugees in 
Austria and other countries. 

— donated nearly one million Scripture volumes for distribution by Chap- 
lains to our Armed Forces, as a vital link between the home churches 
and the men in service. 

— rejoiced in translation of the Bible into more than 1,100 languages. The 
entire Bible has been translated and published in 210 languages; a com- 
plete Testament in 270 more; and at least a Gospel or other complete 
book in 629 additional languages. 

Southern Baptists Support the Work 

Because the Bible Society serves mission work — and because Southern 
Baptist missionaries depend on the Society for Scriptures they need for distri- 
bution to their people — Southern Baptist churches give to the American Bible 
Society. 

Remembering Hebrews 10:24, "Let us consider one another to provoke 
unto love and to good works." — consider these facts and figures: 

In 1956, Southern Baptist churches, with 8V2 million members, gave $120.- 
732 to the American Bible Society. Methodists, with 9^4 million members, gave 
$174 447. They not only led in the total amount of their gifts; they even gave 
more per member! In the words of James 3:10, "Brethren, these things oughi 
not so to be." 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 19 



REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
IN OUR NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST COLLEGES 

The some 825,000 Baptists in North Carolina continue to demonstrate their 
belief in the importance of supporting Baptist colleges as training centers for 
preparing Baptist leadership. This interest is shown in the enrollment of 6,500 
students, most of whom come from our Baptist homes, with approximately 800 
being trained for the ministry and other full-time Christian service. 

For aiding these young people in their college training the Baptists of 
North Carolina are contributing an average of $1.25 per person for both 
operating and capital outlay purposes in these colleges, for a total of $1,100,- 
000 annually. It is our hope that in the near future it will be possible to in- 
crease this financial assistance to provide an average of $2.00 per member in 
our Baptist churches; certainly this is not too much to expect our people to 
invest in the training of our future leaders in the greatest demonination in 
the state. 

Baptists of North Carolina should know that they are doing more to pro- 
vide for the training of their young people than any of the other denomina- 
tions, and yet we cannot escape the fact that of the 21,000 Baptist young 
people enrolled in colleges in North Carolina only about one out of every 
five is able to attend one of the Baptist colleges. In addition to the training of 
ministers and other full-time church workers, these colleges are our chief 
source for Baptist doctors, lawyers, teachers and business leaders. 

These seven Baptist colleges — Wake Forest, Meredith, Campbell, Chowan, 
Gardner-Webb, Mars Hill and Wingate — have an annual operating budget of 
$6,000,000, and a plant valuation of $35,000,000. 

In 1957, for the first time, these colleges, through the Council on Christian 
Education, promoted Father's Day as Christian Education Day in all the Baptist 
churches of the state. Althoug'h the total contributions were not as much as 
hoped for, the response throughout the state was most encouraging, and 
already plans are being made for Father's Day, Sunday, June 15, 1958, and we 
urge all our pastors and other friends of Christian Education to include this in 
their calendar of activities for the new year. 

REPORT OF THE RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

The messengers, visitors, and friends of the Green River Association are 
grateful for the privilege of expressing their deepest appreciation for all the 
blessings received during the One Hundred Seventeenth Session of our Asso- 
ciation. With one accord we lift our voices in sincere gratitude to all who had 
a part in making this annual meeting so successful. 

Be it therefore resolved that we render special thanks to the following: 

1. To the pastors and members of Hickory Grove and Silver Creek 
churches for the wonderful hospitality, the bountiful dinners, the lovely 
flowers and the Christian fellowship. 

2. To the Program Committee for a well planned program; to the speakers 
for their inspirational messages and to those who have rendered special music, 
especially to Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Giles. 

3. To Our Associational Missionary who has led us in such a marvelous 
way throughout the year. Our prayers and co-operation shall continue to be 
with him. 

4. To the county newspapers and to our radio station we offer our grati- 
tude for the fine publicity they have given us. 

5. That we assure our Associational officers of the resolve in our hearts 
to pray for them and work with them to the best year our Association has 
ever had. 

REPORT OF THE PLACE AND PREACHER COMMITTEE 

We recommend that the 1958 Annual Session be held on Thursday, Octo- 
ber 16, with the Columbus Church and Friday, October 17, with the Bill's 
Creek Church, and the mid-year meeting be held at the Montford Cove Church. 
To preach the annual sermon, Rev. J. W. Costner; alternate Rev. T. E. Poole.

J. H. GIBBS 

John Henry Gibbs, 85, died Sept. 17, 1957, after a long and useful life. He 
was Vice-Moderator of the Green River Association from 1941 thru 1947, seven 
consecutive years and was Moderator in 1948. He was always faithful to his 
church, home, county and Association. 

He was chairman of the Board of Deacons of Mill Springs Baptist church 
for several years. He was a civic, business and religious leader of his section 
and Polk County. He was always on the side of right. He was a retired mail 
carrier and farmed for many years. 

We miss him in the Green River Association. He was conscientious in all 
his deliberations. He enjoyed helping others. The world is much better by his 
having lived. 

Emerson said: "Man is a piece of the universe made alive." Charles H. 
Spurgeon said: "A Christian is the gentlest of men; but then he is a man." 
These could be applied to the life of John Henry Gibbs. 

C. W. KEETER 

Charles Washington Keeter, 80, died July 7, 1956. He served the Green 
River Association as Clerk from 1929 thru 1951 — 23 years. He attended all 
sessions as long as he was able. He took much interest in church v/ork. 

He was a deacon, chorister and active member of the First Baptist church 
of Rutherfordton for many years. He was a liberal giver. He promoted the 
Thanksgiving Food Shower for the Mills Home and the Christmas Food Shower 
for Alexander Schools, from our association for several years. 

He was a civic and business leader and was held in high esteem by a wide ' 
circle of friends and relatives. He always greeted the public with a smile and 
a kind word. He was noted for visiting the sick and singing at funerals. 

Truly .he "Fought a good fight, He has finished his course, He kept the 
faith." Earth is sweeter and Heaven is brighter for his having lived. Blessings 
on his memory.

ported that the State Committee would continue to give us the same amount 
as last year, $972.00 or $81.00 per month, to help in our Associational Missions 
Program. The committee at the same meeting rescinded its previous action in 
regard to a School of Missions for 1960, and granted permission to Missions 
Committee to arrange a leave of absence for Associational Missionary during 
June and July to attend Southwestern Seminary summer school. 

The committee met again briefly at Montford Cove at the close of the 
spring session of the Association. No business of importance was transacted at 
this meeting. Each committee reported in regard to their work. Brother 
Jenkins for Missions Committee, Brother Justice for the Brotherhood work. 
Miss Newsome for V/.M.U. work and Mr. J. C. Thomas spoke about the Schools 
of Music, to be held at Rutherfordton and Columbus churches on April 14th 
through 18th. 

The committee met again at the First Church of Rutherfordton on July 
7th, 1958. Mr. Robert Hensley presented the treasurer's report and Brother 
Jenkins gave a report of the Missions Committee and brought before the com- 
mittee the budget for the coming year which was adopted. All committees 
reported and it was voted unanimously to support and go along with the 
simultaneous revival program to be held in March 1959.

The final meeting of the year was held at Calvary Church on October 6th. 
All committees reported. Brother J. J. Allen reported for Missions Committee 
and suggested that a home be purchased for the Associational Missionary. Mr. 
R. E. Price and Henry Powell discussed the type of house which had been 
offered for sale on Collett Street in Rutherfordton. Brother Richard Smith 
moved that a committee of three be appointed by the Moderator to investigate 
the possibility of buying the home and report to the next meeting of the 
Executive Committee, which will be held in January 1959. 

The Moderator appointed to serve on this committee: Brother Lloyd 
Garner, Brother R. F. Mayberry, Brother R. F. Mayberry and Brother A. 
Graham Brooks. 

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 
OF NORTH CAROLBNA, INC. 

ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES AND EXPANSION OF SERVICES NOTED 

June 30, 1958 marked the culmination of 15 years of progressive leader- 
ship by W. C. Reed with the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina. After 
serving as Superintendent of Kennedy Home for seven years, Mr. Reed moved 
to Thomasviile where he served as General Superintendent for eight years. 
Under ,his supervision the Children's Homes experienced one of their greatest 
periods of building, growth, and expansion of services. At present North Caro- 
lina Baptist probably provide more services for dependent children than any 
other similar group in America. Those associated with our child care program 
have, in the 73 years of its history, developed a program which is recognized 
as one of the best in the nation. 

Dr. W. R. Wagoner, of North Wilkesboro, was elected by the Trustees to 
succeed Mr. Reed. Dr. Wagoner assumed his duties July 1. 

ANOTHER YEAR OF PROGRESS 

The year 1957-58 has been a fruitful one in expanding services. Since 
October 1, 1957, North Carolina Baptists have directly served a grand total of 
753 children. In adition to these, our social workers have been able to place 
with relatives or other agencies more than 200 children where their needs are 
now being met. Each applicant has been investigated by our case workers. 
During the past year we were able to admit about one-fourth of the applicants 
as compared with one-fifth admitted in 1956. Through the dedicated resource- 
fulness of our social workers, many homes were re-established while others 
were saved from breaking. 

FINANCING AN EXPANDING PROGFvAM OF CHILD CARE 

North Carolina Baptists have two sources for supporting the Children's 
Homes: 

SOURCE NUMBER 1 is a combination of the Once-A-Month Offering and 

the Cooperative Program. Through this plan the Homes receive a fixed 
amount. This cannot be increased or decreased except by vote of the Conven- 
tion. 

SOURCE NUMBER 11 is the Thanksgiving Offering. Every dollar marked 
"Thanksgiving Offering" comes to the Children's Homes. Last year we asked 
for an increase of 10 per cent in the Thanksgiving Offering. The churches re- 
sponded with a 15 per cent increase. This increase of 31,000 enabled us to 
support the Indian work at Pembroke and at the same time to considerably 
expand the Foster Home Program. We have confidence that North Carolina 
Baptists will continue to remember deserving children at Thanksgiving with a 
generous offering. 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 



INDIAN ORPHANAGE NOW OUR RESPONSIBIUTY 

Last year's report pointed up the need for expanding our Foster Homes 
and for the care of the Indian children at Pembroke. The Baptist State Con- 
vention at its annual meeting last November voted unanimously to accept the 
recommendation of the Board of Trustees of the Baptist Children's Homes and 
to make the Odum. Home at Pembroke a part of the North Carolina Baptist 
Child Care Program. This work with 16 children, has been under the care and 
support of your Homes since January 1958. Money has been set aside to build 
a new cottage at Pembroke for the Indian children. We are now working to 
get a clear title to the land. When that is done, we will move rapidly to erect 
the building. 

LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE 

During the coming year a cottage will be erected at Mills Home for boys 
and a cottage at Kennedy Home for girls. These new buildings are being made 
possible by special gifts and bequests. 

Serious consideration must be given in the near future to more adequately 
care for the children whose emotional stability has been seriously damaged. 
North Carolina Baptists have the potential resources with which to meet this 
growing need. 

A bundle of CHARITY AND CHILDREN should go into every Baptist 
church in the state. If your church is not receiving this attractive and inform- 
ative paper each week, please write Editor Marse Grant at Thomasville im- 
mediately and begin a club in your church. All pastors and Sunday School 
superintendents will receive complimentary copies if they will send their 
names to the editor. 

Most important of all. remember to pray for the children being served by 
our Children's Homes. Some carry heavy burdens which can be lightened 
with our prayers and material support. The administration and staff members 
also appreciate every expression of your love and concern for this Christ- 
ordained ministry. 

1958 REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The contacts, impressions and surroundings of a person largely makes up 
his mind, habits and actions. Even a worm takes on the color of the plant or 
leaf on which it feeds. Human beings take on the color and nature of what 
they read. Never before has there been so much to read. Publishers have 
dressed up their wares in rainbow colors, and used every style trick and art 
of printing to make their publications look tempting to the eyes of young and 
old. Mudh of this popular literature is bad. It pours like a stream of poison 
from the presses of profit hungery publishers. It loads down the news stands, 
and clogs the mail-boxes of all who will buy and receive it. Much of this un- 
clean reading matter gets into Baptist homes. This should never be, for no 
other denomination has so wide a variety of good Christian literature as Bap- 
tists have, to meet the spiritual interests and needs of every member of the 
family. 

How much sound, clean Christian literature comes into your home each 
week to lift up, inspire, and enrich the minds and hearts of your family! Is 
your Baptist state paper coming by mail into your home each week? Is your 
mail box getting only that which is good and wholesome to read? Is your 
reading table a silent witness to your Baptist faith and practice, or it is clutter- 
ed with much that carries the seeds of evil on the printed page? Do you 
always remember that Christian literature aims to enlist, unify, teadh and 
mspire people for nobler Christian service? 



12 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



The Recorder has three subscription plans: Single subscription is $2.50 
a year. The club Plan, with 4 or more subscriptions, is $2.00 a year. The 
every-Family Plan, with one subscription to each resident family or home in 
the church, is only $1.50 a year. Pastors, Recorder representatives in the 
churches, and others have been faithful in securing renewals and new sub- 
scribers, and we wish to thank them for their fine service. Our general secre- 
tary State workers, associational missionaries and others have given their 
continued interest and support in promotion of wider circulation. We wish 
to express our thanks to them. 

We sincerely urge all pastors, associational workers, Sunday School super- 
intendents and officers. State workers, Training Union, Brotherhood, W.M.U. 
members and others to promote in every possible way the Every-Family Plan 
or at least a good-size Recorder club in every churdh. The Baptist paper ought 
to go into every Baptist home. The Recorder and its staff members seek to be 
of every possible service to North Carolina Baptists. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we come to make this annual report to 
the association. 

On behalf of the entire staff of associational Sunday school officers, let 
me pledge our adherence to the ideal that our task is one of service. Our only 
purpose is to help the churches through proper use of their Sunday schools to 
reach the lost for Christ and lead the saved to acknowledge the Lordship of 
Christ in daily living. 

This year our association is reporting 40 churches and 40 Sunday schools. 
Our Sunday school enrolment this year is 6,877. 
Achievements this past year include: 
16 dhurches observed January Bible Study. 

32 Vacation Bible schools and mission Vacation Bible schools were held. ' 
20 churches reported 352 training awards. 
We respectfully make the following recommendations: 

1. That we adopt for this year the theme, "That They Might Have Life." 

2. That the Sunday school leadership of each churdh in our association 
be urged to: 

Determine to gain a minimum of 10 per cent in enrolment and 15 per 
cent in attendance. 

Move up the pattern of organization by starting new classes and de- 
partments. 

Follow a weekly visitation plan. 

Provide a training program which would include January Bible Study 
Week, Preparation Week, and Operation Home Study. 
Hold a Vacation Bible school and conduct a mission Vacation Bible 
school. 

Give priority to personal witnessing. 

Encourage all Sunday school workers to participate in the regular as- 
sociational Sunday school meetings and programs in order that our 
own work may be strengthened and that, through co-operation, all 
dhurches may carry out their divine commission. 

3. That the associational Sunday school leadership be urged to: 
Enlist a complete organization. 

At a clinic, train the associational Sunday school officers and plan the 

help for the churches, a year in advance. 

Plan and direct associational group training schools. 

Provide regular meetings for training and inspiration of the Sunday 

school workers in the churches.

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

A dark church on Sunday night is a depressing picture. But a lighted 
church house on Sunday night is a vocal witness for Christ. Each lighted 
window proclaims that there are people inside worshipping God in spirit and 
in truth. If every church house in the world were lighted for Christ on Sunday 
night, the rays of light would go far toward dispelling the dark cloud of sin 
which enshrouds mankind. A Training Union helps to set the lights aglow for 
Christ on Sunday night. 

Reports from our churches reveal gratifying progress in our local Training 
Unions. But how much greater our witness in Green River Association would 
be if every church would accept the challenge to train its members — training 
them for church work, informing them concerning the world-wide Baptist 
program cultivating missionary spirit and activity among them, and giving 
instruction concerning Baptist doctrine — all offered by a Baptist Training 
Union. 

We are happy to report the organization of one new Training Union this 
year plus new unions, enlargement and revitalization in many of the others. 

Our Mass Meetings were well attended. Especially do we rejoice in our 
"M" Night with an attendance of 467 with 19 churches represented and 14 
pastors present. 

The Young People of our Association are to be congratulated for a splen- 
did Youth Night Program at the Round Hill Baptist Church. A bountiful picnic 
supper was enjoyed by all, followed by a most inspiring program presented by 
our youth. The attendance at this meeting was 170 with 14 churches rep- 
resented and 9 pastors. 

The conference meetings held at the Mountain Creek Church in Mardh and 
Southern Church in September were most beneiicial to our people. We are 
most grateful to our Associational leaders who have contributed much time 
and effort ini helping the leadership and membership of the local Training 
Unions. 

Even though progress has been made, there is much which remains to be 
done. The values to be gained in Training Union are eternal values. Every 
Christian needs them. 

Training Union is a family affair. LET'S ALL GO TO TRAINING UNION! 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The year which has just closed has shown successes as well as some 
failures in our Wonian's Missionary Union work. I hope you like statistics, for 
I shall give you a few now to explain my first statement. 

During the year two new missionary societies have been organized, as 
well as two Junior Girls' Auxiliaries and two Sunbeam Bands. In all organiza- 
tions we have gained a total of 156 new members and 26 subscriptions to our 
magazines. We had 46 more mission study classes with 161 more persons 
reading a mission book than read one last year. Four more organizations are 
using the Calendar of Prayer than last year. Thirteen more organizations ob- 
served the season of prayer for Foreign Missions, 15 more observed the one 
for Home Missions, and 14 more observed the season of prayer for State Mis- 
sions. 

One society more did regular visitation for the purpose of winning souls, 
and 31 more did monthly community mission work. Contributions to the Co- 
operative Program increased by 99, and tithers by 72. Our gifts to The Lottie 
Moon Christmas Offering was larger by $1332.60 than in the previous year, but 
we failed to contribute as much to the Annie Armstrong Offering for Home 
Missions. Some reason for that could be offered, but I refrain from doing so. 

Many of our organizations for both the adult and the youth, are forging 
ahead in their efforts to build up Christian principles in their own communi- 
ties as well as in places farther removed, but several need much encourage- 
ment and strengthening. The associational officers, along with the local ones, 
have that responsibility. 



14 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Our association has adopted the goals for the WMU Third Jubilee Advance 
and are now engaging in the Era of Prayer and Christian Witnessing. Through 
strengthening the regular channels of our v/ork we shall largely meet those 
goals, but we shall keep them before us to urge us on to greater achievements. 

With Paul, as is recorded in Acts 28:15 we "thank God" for what has 
been accomplished and "take courage" to attempt greater things for Him. 

Some of those things must be an endeavor in the 12 dhurches in which 
there is no WMU organization. Others must be in churches where there is only 
a Woman's Missionary Society, for there are five of those. Surely in every 
church there are young people who need to be learning missions. Unless they 
are organized to study missions and practice missions, they will never know 
much about missions. 

Although we have nine churches that are fully graded, there are only ten 
Young Woman's Auxiliaries in the association. Our young women need to be 
studying missions, for they are in the period of deciding what their life work 
will be. God should be given his chance with them. 

Under our system of recognition the "Honor" rating was attained by one 
Intermediate GA and two Junior GA's; the "Advanced" rating, by three 
Women's Societies and three Junior GA's; the "Approved" rating by one Pri- 
mary Sunbeam and three Beginner Sunbeam Bands. 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

In the Brotherthood work of Green River Association, we have been deeply 
concerned about our boys and the Royal Ambassador work in our churches. 
We believe that a church with a Brotherhood can do a better job with R.A.'s. 
Let's organize a Brotherhood in your church, so you can more successfully 
work with the boys that God has put in your care. 

The interest in the Brotherhood work has been good. Our associational 
and regional meetings have been well attended. 

We were fortunate to have Mr. Bill Jackson, State R.A. leader, in the 
Association for two nights, to help us to know how to lead the R.A.'s. Some of 
the churches took advantage of this — some did not. 

Our ten Brotherhoods, with 236 members, have 112 R.A.'s. Some of the 
other churches have R.A. work. It is up to the men to carry on this work in 
every church. Let's not let the women, who led this work so well, our boys, 
or our God, down! 

BAPTIST HOUR REPORT 

The guiding principle of our faith is in the scripture "Go forth into all 

the world and preach the Gosepel to every -reature. . ." But it is only recently 
ttiat God has given us radio and television vith which to carry out this prin- 
ciple on a mass scale — even to the point of reaching the world. We believe in 
making the best possible use of these communications methods for carrying 
the Good News of Christ to the lost and hopeless of our world. 

TELEVANGELISM 

In April 1956, Southern Baptists went on weekly nation-wide television 

for the first time. Since then, more than 200 TV stations have carried the 
dramatic series THIS IS THE ANSWER, to 90 per cent of the television homes 
of America. 

With this brief but impressive television history, the Radio-TV Commission 
will launch an even more meaningful project in January, 1959, called TEL- 
EVANGELISM. Its purpose is to combine the evangelistic concern of the per 
sonal visitor with the selling power of a good dramatic film. 



GREEN RIVEE BAPTIST A SSOCI ATION 15 

TELEVANGELISM will supplement the 1959 Evangelistic Crusades by add- 
ing the necessary follow-through needed for television and affording every 
visitor an opportunity to mention the revival in his local church. 

Early this year, the Commission and the Home Mission Board's Evangelism 
Department, in cooperation with other agencies of the Convention, selected 13 
moral and spiritual problems which hinder full acceptance of Christ. These 
have been projected into forceful half -hour dramas for television in a new 
THIS IS THE ANSWER series. A printed folder takes the story of each film 
beyond the TV solution, develops the plan of salvation and offers additional 
help from the Scriptures. 

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOMES FOR AGING 

The Homes For Aging are now in their eighth year of operation— Rest- 
haven opened March 16, 1951; the Albemarle Home, December 7, 1953; and the 
Administration Building, Winston-Salem, June 13, 1957. The three Homes have 
facilities for 119~counting residents and helpers. The average number ot 
residents will exceed 100. 

Efforts were launched in June to raise $100,000 to match a gift of Mr. Don 
G. Matthews, Sr., of $50 000 and land on which to build a fourth Home For 
The Aging to be located at Hamilton, Martin County. It is expected that the 
campaign will be successfully completed this year, and the construction of the 
new Home will then begin. This Home will provide facilities for approximately 
40 residents, giving a total capacity for all three Homes of 150 persons. 

The Homes have had a good year financially. The auditor's report for the 
year ending September 30, 1957 showed that the income was $268,924.58. When 
the new Administration Building was ready for use, $103,000 was borrowed to 
finisih paying for construction and equipment. All of this !has been repaid 
except $20,000. Funds received from the Special Day Offering and the Co- 
operative Program have helped to meet the current cost of operation. The 
Homes have also received help from individual and corporation gifts. The 
largest individual gift for the year was $40,000. 

A large number of the residents have been aided financially. Less than 
ten per cent of the residents have given to the Homes assets sufficiently to pay 
their cost of keep for life. Thirteen residents have paid the monthly rate, 
which is less than the actual cost to the Homes. Most of the residents are pay- 
ing one-third to one-half of their cost of keep. This means, therefore, that the 
difference in cost is taken from funds received from denominational channels 
and special gifts by individuals and corporations. 

Our program of ministering to the aging presents a great challenge to the 
850,000 Baptists of our state. We think, first, of the ever-increasing number 
of aging friends needing larger dormitory facilities; and, secondly of doubling 
the capacity of our infirmary in the Administration Building. It now accom- 
modates 15 patients, but we should have space for at least 30. It is estimated 
that elderly people will become invalids at the rate of ten per cent annually. 
There have been times when we did not have sufficient room for those who 
needed to be in the infirmary. Our aging friends must look to our Baptist 
constituency to meet these pressing needs. 

With gratitude to all who have made our present Homes possible — church- 
es, individuals and corporations — and with confidence that the Baptists of 
North Carolina will continue to care for these "old soldiers" of Christ in a 
deserving way, we look to the future with great hope.

REPORT ON AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Southern Baptist plans for the Baptist Jubilee Advance, 1959-19bt remind 
us that in every missionary advance the Bible goes forward first! 

The Bible is a ''must" in missions and evangelism. If the people of the 
world are to know Jesus Christ, the one hope of men and nations, they must 
have the Bible. It is the one basic source of knowledge of Him. The Bible 
is the missionary's chief tool; he uses it in all his work. The Bible itself is a 
missionary. It can go where the human missionary cannot go. It can stay 
when he must leave — and keep on speaking to a person's heart. 

Every man must have the Bible in his own language, but in most countries 
the people cannot afford even the cost of printing the Scriptures. 

The American Bible Society helps to translate the Bible, publishes without 
note or comment and distributes without profit, usually below cost, for world- 
wide mission work. For the blind, it supplies scriptures, at a small fraction 
of cost, in raised-letter systems and on Talking Book records. The Bible So- 
ciety is an active partner of Southern Baptists and serves every form of 
Southern Baptist mission work at home and abroad. 
During 1957 the American Bible Society has — 

— distributed throughout the world nearly 15 million volumes of Scrip- 
tures. 
— donated more than one million Scripture volumes for distribution by 
Chaplains to our Armed Forces, as a vital link between the home 
—introduced the Finger Phone, a new feather-weight plastic phonograph, 
operated by one finger. These are being supplied, with Scripture re- 
cordings in the languages needed, in areas where very few people can 
read. They are now in use among the Navaho Indians in the U.S.A. and 
churches and the men in service, 
in various parts of Africa and Asia, 
—accepted a new joint responsibility, with the British and Foreign Bible 
Society, for the work in India, in France and in the Congo Basin of 
Africa. In India, the Bible Societies are undertaking to provide in the 
next 5 years, a New Testament for every Christian who can read and a 
Gospel for every non-Christian who can read; this will require 90 
million Scripture volumes in 5 years for India alone! 
Southern Baptists Support the Work 

Because the Bible Society serves mission work— and because Southern 
Baptist missionaries depend on the Society for Scriptures they need for dis- 
tribution to their people— ^Southern Baptist churches give to the American 
Bible Society. 

In 1957, Southern Baptist churches gave $118,815 to the American Bible 
Society — but still stood in second place, exceeded by Methodist gifts of 
$136,499. 

The help of every Southern Baptist church is needed. Has your church 
given this year? 

Suggestions based on what many churches are doing. 
Country and village churches — $10 to $25. 
Churches in small cities— $25 to $100. 
Great city churches— $200 to $500 or more. 

REPORT OF THE ALLIED CHURCH LEAGUE 

Alcohol remains our Public Enemy No. 1. Alcohol causes more crime, 
wrecks, misery and sends more souls unprepared to judgment than all the 
wars, pestilences and famine since the days of Adam and Eve in the Garden 
of Eden. Yet people continue to drink the poisonous stuff. The love of money 
causes men to make and sell illegal liquor. 



GREEN RR'ER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 17 



Since a year ago North Carolina Drys have lost one county. Catawba, 
making 69 diy counties now. i.e.. with no legal liquor sold. Fifty-two counties 
do not^ allow the sale of wine, while 50 oppose legal beer. Eight towns and 
cities in North Carolina have ABC or legal liquor stores. Sixteen allow wine 
to be sold and 18 beer. 

Most of our large daily papers, national magazines, radio and r\' stations 
run liquor, wine or beer ads. About S250.000.000 is spent annual for this 
cause. The Saturday Evening Post. America's oldest magazine with over 5.- 
000.000 circulation, recently announced it would accept^ads. after refusing 
them for over 60 years. 

Life Magazine gets nearly S14.000.000 yearly from the alcohol beverage 
advertising, vs'hile Look ^Magazine's yearly receipts from alcohol beverage ad- 
vertising is nearly six million. The American people are being rocked in the 
chaii' of ease and indifference on this important question. 

The estimated number of alcoholics in the U.S. has increased from 2.- 
632.000 in 1940 to 5.000.000 at present. This is one out of each 21 adults in 
our country. 

The Baptist and ]\Iethodist are taking the lead m fighting beverage alcohol 
in our state and nation. 

The crime bill in the U.S. is now S20 billion dollars yearly and gTowing 
rapidly. T^^ice as many crimes are committed in the U.S. yearly now. or 3 
million as compared to 1^2 million 25 years ago. 

The people of North Carolina spend now over 8140.000.000 for wine. 
liquor and beer at ABC stores. 

Facts shove that more illicit stills are destroyed in "Wet" counties than 
in -Bry." In 1956. a total of 1,939 stills were destroyed in -Wet'" counties in 
North Carolina. Last year over 2.000. Pastors, church officers and others who 
are interested in wiping out "'Enemy Number One" must get on the job. or the 
liquor, wine and beer forces, plus a wet legislature, will •'Take Over." 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
Christian Education prepares one mentally, physically, and spiritually to 
better serve his countiw and God. With the growing need of trained leadership 
for the years ahead; we feel that a greater emphasis should be placed upon 
Christian education. 

Baptist of North Carolina have five two-year junior colleges and two four- 
year senior colleges. They are not only good colleges from an academic stand- 
point but they are Christian in piu-pose and motivation. We beUeve these 
colleges embody the "Seven Marks of a Christian College" as follows: 

1. Ownership — They are owned by the 844.689 Baptists of North Carolina. 

2. Chi'istian Administration — Those who direct our colleges are Christian 
men and women. 

3. A Christian Faculty — More than 400 competent Chinstian men and 
women ai'e employed as teachers. 

4. Christian Students — :Most of the students come from Christian homes 
and are Christians. 

5. Christian Ideals — Christian Education takes total knowledge and trans- 
lates it into practical, workable, durable pattern of personal living for a 
purpose: servcie to God and mankind. 

6. Christian Teachings — The basic interpretation that flows from Christian 
truth enhances every subject taught in oui' seven Baptist colleges. 

7. Christian Service— The end product of a Christian college will be found 
in Christians at work for the kingdom as teachers, preachers, missionaries, 
housewives, business and professional people, politics, etc. 

We need to inform our high school graduates of oiu' colleges and en- 
courage them to attend one of them. Only one-eighth iT,634) of alf students in 
North Carolina's 61 colleges and universities are enrolled in our seven Baptist 
colleges. 



20 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



We recommend that every church in the Green River Baptist Association 
take a special offering for Christian Education on Father's Day this year. Also 
that we increase our gifts through the Cooperative Program. 

These men and v\^omen who direct our colleges covet our prayers and 
concern for them. 

REPORT OH EVANGELISM 

Evangelism is the heart of God's work on earth. It must ever be in the 
foreground of all our endeavors in the churches and in the association if we 
follow the New Testament pattern. Every Christian's greatest privilege and 
responsibility is to let Jesus Christ work in and through us to evangelize the 
world. This is the Great Commission and to carry out the Great Commission is 
to do the work of evangelism. 

What are we doing in response to this high call from, God? Let us look 
briefly at the record. 

All churches in the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina last year 
had a ratio of baptisms to membership of l to 25. This means that on an 
average last year it took 25 church members a whole year to win one person 
to Christ. This record isn't anything that it should be, but it does represent 
an increase of 4% over the preceding year. Total baptisms reported in the 
state in 1956 were 32,468, and in 1957 they were 33,796. 

The number of people won to Christ and baptized into the fellowship of 
the churches gives only a partial picture of the work of evangelism in the 
churches. The remainder of the picture is seen in what happens to the con- 
verts after baptism. Here statistics are not so easily compiled, but the number 
^ho will be won to Christ and baptized in the future is dependent upon the 
maturing of those being baptized now. A Christian grows only as he partici- 
pates in witnessing for Christ. Thus the program of evangelism in a church 
consists of winning people to Christ and keeping them enlisted in the total 
work of redemption. 

Next year we face an unparalleled opportunity to lead all the people in 
the churches to engage in the total work of redemption by going all-the-way 
in cooperation in the continent-wide Simultaneaous Evangelistic Crusade. This 
Crusade will be the biggest concerted effort ever made to win the North 
American continent to Christ and to experience new depths of dedication to 
Christ on the part of all church members. Seven major Baptist conventions in 
the United States and Canada are cooperating in this Crusade. These conven- 
tions are composed of 75,000 churches which have 19,000,000 members. Here 
is an opportunity like we have never faced before to get into the stream of 
God's redeeming purpose. Surely every church in this association will want 
to be a part of this great effort! 

In view of the fact that the Crusade is next spring and with the prior 
approval of the Executive Committee of the Green River Baptist Association 
as Chairman of Evangelism I would like to recommend that the Green River 
Association cooperate with fellow Baptists on the American continent in the 
1959 Simultaneous Evangelistic Crusade and that our association join many 
other associations in promoting this Crusade from March 15-29, 1959 and that 
we ail begin on Sunday, March 15, 1959. Also, I would like to ask the associa- 
tion to elect the following to serve on the Steering Committee for the Crusade: 
The General Chairman, Lloyd Garner; Chairman of Church Enlistment, Henry 
Powell; Chairman of Finance, Harold White; Chairman of Publicity, R. E. 
Price; Chairman of Radio-Television, A. G. Brooks; Chairman of Fellowship, 
James E. Branch; Chairman of Extension and Colportage, Wade Ruff; Chair- 
man of Special Rallies, R. F. Mayberry; Chairman of Prayer, Frances Whit- 
mire; Chairman of Music, J. C. Thomas; Chairman of Visitation, Dan Jackson; 
Chairman of Attendance, Richard Smith; and Chairman of Census, J. B. Jones. 

May the Spirit of God move across these mountains in our hearts that 
spiritual awakening may come in this hour of challenge.

REPORT OF RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

The messengers and visitors to the one hundred and eighteenth session 
of Green River Baptist Association rejoice in the opportunity to express 
thanks and appreciation to the host churches, Columbus, Bill's Creek, their 
pastors, and people for cordial welcome and hospitality extended to us during 
the days of October 16 and 17, 1958. 

To the leaders of the Association for a balanced consideration of all 
phases of the Church Program. 

To the individual members of each committee who planned, prepared, 
and served a bountiful meal, to those who planned and worked to make the 
program of the day smooth so that maximum of attention could be given to 
the spiritual blessings afforded by the occasion. 

To each individual who contributed of time, and talent to fill the pro- 
grams with inspirational reports, challenging messages and spiritual food. 

May all of us who have attended gain from the fellowship courage to 
accept the challenge to work and grow for advancement of the greatest busi- 
ness on earth — ^The Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ.

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Our Baptist Hospital seeks to serve our people with a complete program of 
specialized medical care for all who need it. Our people go in great numbers, 
with all types of serious illnesses, from all walks of life, and in all financial cir- 
cumstances, to receive the ministry of our Baptist medical center. A constant 
effort is made to keep it personal and Christian in its care of sick people. 

Last year service patients from 95 counties of the State made over 66,000 
visits to the 31 clinics of the Out-Patient Department, which is open to families 
not able to pay the full cost of their medical care. About the same number of 
office visits was made by private or full-pay patients. More than 16,000 sick 
persons were hospitalized for 132,000 days of bed care- 
Forty per cent of the hospital service is rendered the patients who go to 
the Out-Patient Clinics or who enter the hospital through the Out-Patient Depart- 
ment. The services of the physicians are free to all these patients, but the hospital 
charges must be paid unless other arrangements are made by the family. 

Last year the hospital spent well over one million dollars in the care of these 
service patients. The Mother's Day Fund, along with the welfare funds and assist- 
ance from other agencies and foundations, enables the hospital to provide more 
than half of this service free for our very poor people. The Mother's Day Fund 
alone, however, has not covered the full cost of the care of even the most needy. 

We need to lay upon the hearts of our members the necessity of the Mother's 
Day Fund, if our Baptist Hospital is to provide this important service for our 
poorer people. 

Number of churches giving in 1959 was 33; 7 gave nothing. 

Total amount of gifts for 1959 was $2,009.51.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

The ninth year of operation of the Baptist Homes for the Aging began March 
16, 1959. All three of the Homes — Resthaven, Albemarle and Headquarters — ■ 
have had a good year, and have been filled practically all the year to capacity (119) 
counting residents and helpers. When vacancies occur, there are always more 
applications on the waiting list than rooms to be filled. 

Since the average age of a resident is about 80 years, there were several 
deaths during the year. Among the deceased was the oldest resident, "Uncle" 
John T. Holt, formerly of Wilson Mills. He died July 13, being 99 years of age. 
Had he lived until February 26, 1960, he would have been 100 years of age. He 
was a resident of the Homes nearly eight years, and for the past two years was 
a patient in the infirmary of the Headquarters Building. He was, indeed, a great 
soul, and all connected with the Homes keenly miss him. 

This has been another year of God's favor upon the Homes and of encour- 
aging progress. While the campaign to raise funds to build the fourth Home in 
eastern North Carolina, at Hamilton, has not been completed, yet there is good 



18 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



reason to believe that the money will be secured this year and construction will 
begin. Don G. Matthews of Hamilton has given the land for the site, and most 
of the $50,000 which he promised. He is ready to give the balance when the 
extra $100,000 has been raised. With re-organization of plans and persistent effort, 
the balance needed can and will be forthcoming. 

Architectural plans and specifications for the enlargement of the infirmary at 
Headquarters have been prepared, and construction of 28 additional bedrooms 
should begin by September or October. 

The two most pressing needs of the Homes for the Aging now are: 

1. To finish raising the funds to start construction of the Hamilton Home. 

2. To raise about $75,000 to cover the balance needed to pay for the addi- 
tional facilities in the infirmary expansion. 

So, a total amount of $150,000 must be raised, therefore, to finish these two 
projects. When they are completed, 60 more bedrooms will be added for anxious 
and needy residents, thus increasing the total capacity of all the Homes to 170 
residents. 

Would you like to have a generous part in helping make these plans become 
a reality at the earliest possible date? If so, please let James M. Hayes, General 
Superintendent, hear from you at once. Why not furnish, or endow, or construct 
a room with your gift? If you are not able to do as much, send the amount you 
are able to give to North Carolina Baptist Homes, Inc., Reynolds Park Road, 
Winston-Salem, N. C, and your gift will be used as you may instruct. 

All connected with the North Carolina Baptist Homes are most grateful to 
the churches, individuals, and corporations for the help given to offer our aging 
friends who live in the Homes a program of security, comfort, congeniality, and 
a Christian ministry. 

Respectfully submitted,

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. 

North Carolina Baptists have shown remarkable interest in their Children's 
Homes during the past year. Awakened interest in your Child Care program has 
been evidenced in many respects. 

During the past year members of the Children's Homes staff, under the best 
leadership available, have engaged themselves in a conscientious study of the entire 
Child Care program sponsored by North Carolina Baptists. Every effort is being 
made to continue the best care possible for dependent children. 

More than 1,000 boys and girls were served by the Children's Homes during 
the past year. Mills Home, Kennedy Home and Odum Home provided care for 
547 children, while 197 lived in Foster Homes. Through financial assistance of 
the Mothers Aid program 40 children were able to live with their mothers. Super- 
vision and financial help were afforded 30 college students. 

Three cottages are currently under construction — one at each of the three 
Homes. 

The Convention has voted to bring the Children's Homes into the Coopera- 
tive Program on the same basis as all other institutions and objects. Churches 
may continue to send Once-A-Month offerings and special gifts. Designated gifts 
from churches to the Children's Homes will be administered by the Convention 
in the same manner as designated gifts from churches to other institutions. The 
Homes are encouraged with this improved financial relationship with the Con- 
vention. For lack of sufficient income the Homes operated on a $22,000 deficit 
in 1958. The deficit for 1959 will be approximately $65,000. The only way we 
can meet the deficit this year is through a substantial increase in the Thanksgiving 
offering. 

Your Children's Homes are being asked by the Convention to expand their 
services. With your prayers, loyal and generous support, your leadership they 
will continue to move forward as resources are made available.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

It is with heartfelt gratitude that we come to make this annual report to the 
Association. 

On behalf of the entire staff of Associational Sunday School Officers, let me 
pledge our adherence to the ideal that our task is one of service. Our only purpose 
is to help the churches through proper use of their Sunday Schools to reach the 
lost for Christ and lead the saved to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in daily 
living. 

This year our Association is reporting 40 churches and 40 Sunday Schools. 
Our Sunday School enrolment this year is 7,085. Fifteen churches observed January 
Bible Study. Thirty-one Vacation Bible Schools and Mission Vacations Bible 
Schools were held, with 2,611 enrolled in Vacation Bible School. Our churches 
reported 609 training awards. 

Our goals for the coming year are: 

• 650 Training Awards. 

• 25 churches observing January Bible Study. 

• A 10% increase in Bible School enrolment. 

• Have 10 Standard Sunday Schools this year. 

We need the cooperation of every church, pastor, superintendent and teacher 
if we are to attain these goals. 

Respectfully submitted, 
T. E. Poole 



ROYAL AMBASSADOR REPORT 

We now have 16 Junior Chapters and 8 Intermediate Chapters, with a total 
enrolment of 233. 

Our goal for next year is 8 new chapters, with an enrolment of 350.

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

I am glad to report three new Brotherhoods this year as follows: Green Hill, 
Chimney Rock and Montford Cove. We now have 12 Brotherhoods, with 265 
members. This is far short of our goal of a Brotherhood in every church in the 
Association, but we believe with our Associational Brotherhood Officers, and the 
help of our Associational Missionary, we will see a new day for the Brotherhood 
in this Association. 

At our associational dinner meeting in April at First Baptist Church in Ruther- 
fordton the attendance was good and the program was excellent. 

Again, I plead with pastors of churches that do not have a Brotherhood to 
call on some of the Associational Brotherhood Officers and let us help organize 
Brotherhoods in your churches — that we men will be able to do greater work 
with our boys and for our Lord. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

The temperance outlook in our State and Nation is not bright. We have no 
no director for the Christian Action League, formerly the Allied Church League. 
Rev. R. M. Hauss resigned last June 30th and no one has been appointed to replace 
him to date. 

The "Wets" are on the job day and night. They are doing their utmost to 
make "drinking converts" of our people, especially the young folks. The United 
States is now producing 1200 alcoholics daily, 50 every hour, around the clock, 
day and night, Sundays and holidays. 

September 1, 1959, the State of Oklahoma opened 500 liquor stores after 
being dry for 52 years. The liquor crowd made "much to do" about driving boot- 
leggers out of that fair State. They had bootleggers on several large TV chains 
that night and asked one in particular what he was going to do now for a living 
since Oklahoma was going to "control liquor," etc. He replied, "Guess I will go 
to Mississippi, the only dry State in the Union." 

The Angels in Heaven surely hung crepe on the battlements of glory when a 
State like Oklahoma went "into the liquor business." 

Khruschev, dictator of Russia, has ordered less drinking in his country, maitily 
for economic and business reasons. He deplored the loss of millions of man-hours 
of labor in Russia, due to the excessive use of alcoholic drinks. 

According to a news dispatch from Havana, Cuba, September 24, 1959, Fidel 
Castro, dictator, took a drastic step to put the bottle outside the reach of most 
Cubans. He slapped an almost prohibitive tax of 5 to 8 cents on a bottle of beer, 
more than $1 on a bottle of rum and up to $1.80 for brandy, whiskey and sparkling 
wines. He said, "The abusive use of alcohol is as immoral as the use of drugs. 
I imposed this tax to curb drinking, which has increased 300 per cent since January 
1, 1959." 

Mecklenburg County (N. C.) has two records: It sells more liquor than in 
other county in North Carolina, and has more crime than any other area in North 
Carolina. The FBI report for last year showed that one-eighth of the 29,756 crimes 
committed in North Carolina were in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Liquor 
and crime go together. 

Let me urge all pastors in our Association and county to preach at least one 
strong sermon a year on the evil effects of alcohol. The Church must destroy the 
Liquor Traffic, or the Liquor Traffic will destroy the Church. Strong drink is 
our number one enemy. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. E. Price 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

Training Union work in our churches this year has been about average. We 
have had better years and we have had worse. We are holding our own. But as 
I recall from studying the Bible, Christ did not tell His disciples to hold their own 
— but to go forward. 

Lest we might become satisfied with an average year, let us consider these 
figures: 

We have 23 churches with Training Unions, with a total membership of 1811. 
That means we have almost as many churches dark at the Training Union hour as 
are lighted. That means for every one person enrolled in Training Union we 
have four church members who are not. A Training Union usually averages 
about 60% in attendance. This being true, we have an average of 7 Green River 
Baptists not in Training Union for each one present. This is not good. 

May I, however, commend each of you who has supported the Training Union 
work this year. A good Training Union does not just happen — it requires a lot 
of work by a lot of people. 

As we start into a new year, may we strive to greatly improve this record. How? 

• May we be much in prayer for the new Associational Director and his staff. 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 21 



• May we pray much for the officers and leaders in our local Training Unions. 

• And before we count ourselves completely out of Training Union work, 
may we earnestly seek God's will for our lives and then do it. 

If we will all do that a New Day will dawn for Green River Baptists. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. J. Allen, Associational Director 

BRIEF HISTORY OF RUTHERFORDTON FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH 

In the twilight of a June evening in 1851, we see coming from sonie of the 
homes of the village of Rutherfordton and from homes in the surrounding com- 
munity, 21 men and women, boys and girls, carrying torches to light their way. 

As they gather in a room of some home Elder J. M. Webb speaks: "I'll ask 
Brother Allen to state the object of this meeting." 

Brother Allen: "Brother Moderator, those of us assembled here, as we trust 
led by the Holy Spirit, have met for the purpose of organizmg a Baptist Church." 

Elder Webb: "Why do you wish to organize a Baptist Church here?" 

Brother Moore: "Brother Moderator, this town has been our county site for 
60 years with a church, and since there are a number of our faith moving into 
this town, we feel like we should, under and by the guidance of God, try to establish 
here, in the interest of the Kingdom work." 

And so these twenty-one people agreed to the Articles of Faith and covenanted 
"to give ourselves up to each other in church and Christian fellowship in order 
to keep up the unity of the Spirit in bonds of peace, and to assist each other in 
all matters of distress, and to pray for each other in prosperity. 

They employed J. M. Webb as pastor and proceeded to build a house of 
worship on a lot donated by William Thompson, a native of Russia, who had 
immigrated to this place. 

From that humble beginning on June 12, 1851, this church has grown in size 
and usefulness — the membership from 21 to 650; from a one-room frame struc- 
ture about 50 X 100 feet to a building containing about 40 rooms; from a yearly 
contribution of a few dollars to $43,000. 

Rev. Lloyd Garner is the present pastor.

REPORT ON BAPTIST LITERATURE 

The Apostle Paul in writing to Timothy said, "Give attention to reading." 

In that day the people had no newspapers, no magazines, no printing press. 
But they had to read to find truth. Never before has there been so much to read 
as we have today. Much of this flood of reading matter is bad; so Christian 
people must cast aside the evil and turn to that which is good. The Bible, of 
course, occupies first place always as we read in search for the truth. All Christian 
literature must forever be dedicated to the furtherance of the Gospel, or it fails 
in its noble purpose. 

Money-hungry publishers without Christian motives are pouring out obscene 
printed matter like a stream of poison to capture the minds of all who will stop, 
look and read. Baptists have no need to buy or read such literature, for they 
have an immense volume of clean, uplifting literature coming from Baptist presses 
and other sources to suit every age and need. 

Baptist democracy has long depended largely on informed, enlightened people 
for progress. Informed people must be reading people. 

Baptists must read in order to understand the magnitude and the glory of 
Baptist growth. They must know if they are to grow. Information about Kingdom 
building brings greater inspiration for Christian action. 

In the year 1833 the Biblical Recorder was founded, and for well over a cen- 



22 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



tury it has been going into the homes of our people as the journal of Baptist life 
in North Carolina. 

The Lord has blessed our Baptist work in North Carolina in a marvelous way. 
It is great in its total purpose and scope, and inspiring in its opportunities. How 
can Baptists hope to keep informed and inspired to do their best in this panorama 
of Christian activity all over the State unless they take and read their State Baptist 
paper each week? 

The Biblical Recorder serves every cause dear to the hearts of our Baptist 
people in North Carolina. Our Baptist State paper informs, indoctrinates, enlists, 
inspires and unifies our Baptist forces for the Lord's work. 

The Biblical Recorder carries in its pages the Baptist message in North Caro- 
lina. It ought to be in every Baptist home in our State. No Baptist mail box is 
beyond the reach of the State Baptist paper each week, for each copy is mailed 
direct to each subscriber in each case. 

The Biblical Recorder has three subscription plans: Single subscription to one 
person is $2.50 a year. The Club Plan, with 4 or more subscribers is $2.00 a year. 
The Every Family Plan, with one subscription to each resident family or home in 
the church, is only $1.50 a year. 

We sincerely urge all pastors, associational workers, Sunday School superin- 
tendents and officers. State workers, Training Union, Brotherhood, W.M.U. mem- 
bers and others to promote in every possible way the Every Family Plan or at 
least a good-sized Biblical Recorder Club in every Baptist church. The Baptist 
paper ought to go into every Baptist Home. The Biblical Recorder and its staff 
members seek to be of every possible service to North Carolina Baptists. We wish 
to express our thanks to them. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James E. Branch

RADIO AND TELEVISION COMMISSION 

With each passing year the Convention's radio and television ministry has 
expanded. Sometimes the major growth has been in facilities and equipment; 
sometimes in finances; and, when made possible by these, additional programs 
have been launched. 

In 1958 and early 1959, a project called "Televangelism" took shape and 
gave new impetus to the television series "This Is The Answer." It was a new 
slant on visitation coupled with television which captured the imagination of indi- 
viduals and churches all over the nation. 

Because of the success of "Televangelism 1959" and the aid it gave the simul- 
taneous evangelistic crusades, it has been proposed as one facet of the entire 
Baptist Jubilee Advance for the next five years. 

Extra financing has been involved, but the added effectiveness of the tele- 
vision ministry has made it all worth the money involved. The Evangelism De- 
partment worked with Secretaries of Evangelism in each State to promote *Tele- 
vangelism" in a great and mighty way. 

Results: During the first six weeks of the TV series, mail to the Commission 
had reached the highest proportion in its history. Much of it was requests for 
booklets, gospel portions, and other printed matter. But a good portion asked 
for spiritual counsel and indicated a spiritual stirring in individuals who had never 
experienced such a thing before. 

The 1960 "This Is The Answer" series for TV and "Televangelism" was be- 
gun in February. Larger Cooperative Program allotments will make it possible 
to produce 13 new films annually now with prospects of eventually reaching 26 
yearly dramas. 

This is the Great Commission being carried out in a big way!

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

The Bible is the message of God to man. Man must have the Bible in his 
own language if he receives God's message. 

The Bible is the major tool in all Christian endeavor. Its message challenges 
man to his Creator. 

Realizing this, the American Bible Society helps to translate the Bible, pub- 
lishes without note or comment, distributes without profit, often below cost, for 
worldwide mission work. 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 25 



During 1958 the American Bible Society: . 

• Distributed over 12 million publications. 

• Distributed over a million volumes to chaplains for distribution to our 
Armed Forces. 

• Distributed over 60 thousand volumes and Talking Book Records for the 
blind. 

• Provided scriptures in 25 new languages. 

Southern Baptists support the work. Southern Baptists took first place among 
all denominations in gifts. The amount was $162,198.71. 

The American Bible Society had a deficiency of $104,901.00 in the budget 
for 1958. As of now the American Bible Society needs $375,000.00 to meet the 
budget for 1959. 

May God help us to rise and support the American Bible Society in giving 
His Word to all men.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Education is not enough; Christian education is the main step in building a 
better society. "Get wisdom, and with all thy getting, get understanding." Prov. 
4: 5. There are many ideologies trying to contribute to eliminating the ills of our 
world such as Socialism, Communism, military might, and even education. Educa- 
tion is fine, but Christian educatoin is finer and produces finer men and women. 
We need Christian-educated men in politics, law, business, social work, journalism, 
and in every area of life. Without such, our world cannot be what God wants it 
to be. Let us not only have educated men and women, but educated men and 
women who are thoroughly Christians. 

Our denomination supports seven Baptist schools in North Carolina. They 
are Campbell College, Chowan College, Gardner-Webb College, Mars Hill College, 
Meredith College, Wake Forest College and Wingate College. Southern Baptists 
have five types of schools: Seminaries, Training Schools, Colleges and Universities, 
Junior Colleges and Bible Institutes. We Southern Baptists have at least sixty-four 
schools worth more than any amount one could name for the glory of God. 

What can our schools expect of us? What do they have a right to expect 
of us? May I suggest five things that I believe they have a right to expect of us: 

1. They (our schools) can expect us to help turn fine Christian boys and girls 
to our schools. 

2. They can expect us to have a real love for our schools. Real love suffers 
long and is kind. If we try to understand all reports, whether good or 
bad, it will help us and our schools tremendously. 

3. They can expect us to pray for and encourage our faculties. 

4. TTiey can expect us to visit the institutions as often as possible. 

5. They can expect us to support our schools with endowments. This will 
meet the demands for growth of equipment and faculty. 

What can we expect of our Baptist schools? What do we have a right to 
expect, as Baptists, of our Baptist schools? Again may I suggest five things that 
I believe we have a right to expect of our Baptist schools. They are: 

1. We have a right to expect that every instructor be thoroughly Christian 
and of high stand morally and scholastically. 

2. We have a right to expect, for our poorer boys and girls, a chance to work 
their way (or part of their way) through college. 

3. We have a right to expect that no apology shall be uttered in attitude or 
word for being a Christian on the campus, or for the doctrines that Baptists 
stand for, and have even been willing to die for. 

4. We have a right to expect our schools to do a bit more in helping train 



26 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



students in church music, homeletics and evangelism. (Many Christian 
workers cannot go on to the seminary.) 
5. We have a right to expect the moral standards on these campuses to be in 
complete harmony with the interpretation of the scriptures without any 
apologies to any student or anyone else. 
The difference between Christian education and secular education is not in 
form, but in spirit; not in technique, but in tradition; not in curriculum, but in 
character; not in property, but in personality; not in cash, but in culture; not in 
mechanics, but in dynamics; not in information, but in inspirations; not in just 
minds trained, but in destinies determined.

REPORT ON SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP 

This is the second year our Region 8 Camp has been in operation. Under 
the consecrated leadership of Rev. T, A. Lineberger, pastor of Macedonia Baptist 
Church of Kings Mountain, and his wonderful and consecrated family, this work 
is growing. Now, if this work is to continue to grow in service to our young 
people, it will do so by your support. 

The first season of operation the camp served some 800 boys and girls of 
the junior and intermediate age groups. There were 266 decisions for Christ, in- 
cluding 40 professions of faith and a number who surrendered for special Christian 
service. 

This year the camp served a total of 1786. There were 784 boys and girls in 
the eight four-day camps. Special groups numbered 604 and 400 others, such as 
overnight groups and special meetings of Brotherhoods, other church groups, etc. 
From these there were 554 re-dedications, 47 professions of faith, plus 47 decisions 
from the special groups that attended the camp. 

Have you visited this camp? If not, then you have missed a heaven-sent 
blessing. 

Respectfully submitted, 
f; A, C. Hughes

Department of Rutherford County for their work in making our meetings 
safe regarding traffic. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. A. Nanney, Chairman 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 27 



BRIEF HISTORY OF GREEN HILL BAPTIST CHURCH 

On December 6, 1913, a Presbytery met at Portrum School to organize a 
church. Devotionals were conducted by Rev. B. M. Hamrick and the sermon 
was delivered by Rev. D. J. Hunt. Churches represented were Mt. Creek, Pleasant 
Grove, Pleasant Hill, Rutherfordton First, Round Hill, Mt. Vernon, Camp Creek, 
four pastors and nine deacons. 

Twenty-seven people presented their letters from four churches as follows: 21 
from Mt. Creek, 4 from Rutherfordton and 2 from Pleasant Grove. Seven came 
under watchcare. 

Two weeks later the organization was completed. Rev. D. J. Hunt of Union 
Mills was unanimously called as pastor. A. L. Rucker was elected Clerk; T. J. 
Jones, Treasurer, and J. A. Rucker, J. P. Jones and A. G. Walker were elected 
Deacons. 

During these 46 years, 14 men have served as pastors. Rev. C. R. Upton is 
the present pastor. 

Respectfully submitted, 
, Mrs. W. W. Nanney 

REPORT ON EVANGELISM 

Jesus' command to us is "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations baptizing 
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching 
them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with 
you alway, even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28: 19-20. Here Jesus 
summed up God's purpose in the world and the objective toward which God's 
people must ever move in full dedication if they are to be in His will. 

The purpose of God in which He uses His people is the evangelization of 
the world. Evangelization means "making disciples," "baptizing them," and "teach- 
ing them" to be obedient to Christ in "all things" He has commanded. Thus a 
person is not evangelized until he becomes an evangelist. Therefore, vangelism 
is to make disciples and mature them. This is God's purpose and plan for His 
people in the world. 

In the Great Commission Jesus said "Go," "teach" with the purpose of making 
disciples, "baptize" and "teach" them to be obedient to Christ in all things. The 
only imperative in all these mighty words of action is "to make disciples" or to 
teach with the purpose of making disciples. Thus Jesus puts soul-winning first in 
His total program with a definite command. In every church or associational pro- 
gram, soul-winning must be in the forefront of its total program to be in the will 
of Christ. This order is the divine imperative. Any individual or church that 
changes this order is disobedient to Christ, and therefore cannot expect His cm- 
powering and blessing upon the efforts put forth. 

During the years 1959-1964, in the Jubilee Advance, Baptists of North America 
are making an effort to be obedient to the Great Commission by putting soul- 
winning in the foreground of their respective programs. In 1959 it appears that 
real progress has been made in this direction. Reports received in the Office of 
Evangelism in Raleigh indicate that the Simultaneous Evangelistic Crusades over 
the State were the most fruitful ever. With one exception, every association in 
the State participated. Most of them did more praying, planning and working to 
win all the people to a full committal to Christ than ever before. Figures in the 
Raleigh office for the State show about 15,000 baptisms, 20,000 total additions, 
and that more than 2,000 young people offered their lives for full-time Christian 
vocations. 

The ratio of baptisms to church members is 1:22 for Southern Baptists and 
1:25 for North Carolina Baptists. Reports in the Green River Baptist Association 
seem to indicate that we have had one of the best years in the history of our 
Association. May God continue to lay this burden of this important work on our 
hearts that we may be able to hear Him say in that day, "Well done thou good 
and faithful servant." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lloyd W. Garner, Jr. 



28 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



MINISTERS' WIVES AUXILIARY 

The membership of this Auxiliary consists of the wives of all Baptist ministers, 
missionaries, ministers of music or education, both active and retired, and widows 
of deceased ministers who live within the bounds of our Association. 

The purpose of this organization is to cultivate the spiritual and social fellow- 
ship among its members and the mutual sharing of cultural ideas and ideals, and 
the study of problems of major concern to the group, enabling each member to 
be more useful to the Master, in her chosen field of labor. 

The meetings are held monthly in ten of the twelve months of the calendar 
year, excepting July and August. These meetings are held in the home of an indi- 
vidual member by invitation or at some designated place agreed upon by the group. 

Even though this is a young organization, we feel that we are off to a good 
beginning, and we sincerely hope that we may reach every minister's wife into 
our fellowship.

BAPTIST HISTORY 

Baptists have a glorious history of which they may be proved. Whether they 
can trace it or not, it goes back to the time of Christ. Baptists should know their 
history better. 

Not only do Baptists have a great history — a worthy record of past achieve- 
ments — they are making history today. This history will be written by Baptist 
historians in the future. 

If future historians are to write the history we are now making, they must 
have the data, the records, the doings of the people of today. How can anyone 
in the future write the history of your church or association unless the materials 
are preserved? 

Why not have a Church Historian gathering and preserving your church history?

CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS 

Article I — Name 

The name of this organization shall be the Green River Baptist As- 
sociation. 

Article II — Membership 

The membership of this organization shall be composed of pastors of 
member churches, ordained ministers with membership in the member 
churches, and elected messengers from member churches. Each church shall 
be entitled to three elected messengers for the first one hundred members 
or fraction thereof, and one messenger for each additional one hundred 
members or fraction thereof. 

Members churches shall be all churches listed in the current issue of 
minutes at the time of the adoption of this constitution; all churches received 
by letter or recommendation from another association and by vote of two-

satisfactory evidence of their adherence to the faith and practice of Mis- 
sionary Baptists fhall be received as constituent members of the Green 
River Baptist Association. 

While disclaiming the right of authority to interfere in the affairs of 
any local church, this Association asserts its privilege of using discretion 
in receiving churches into her 'membership and in withdrawing fellowship 
from any church found on careful investigation to be walking in disorder, 
or failing in practice to endorse and support the missionary and benevolent 
Vv^ork of the Bajptist denomination. In the event that a church fails or refuses 
to make an annual report to the Association for two successive years, it 
shall automatically be excluded from membership in the Association unless 
the Advisory Committee recommends otherwise. 

Article III — Purpose 

The primary objective of this Association shall be to counsel together 
for the enlargement and strengthening of God's Kingdom by unity and 
growth among the churches composing her; and by cooperating with the

GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

October 13, 1960 

OUTREACH THROUGH CHURCH MUSIC 
Frank Nanney 

It is a fact that church music can be used to reach out and help to bring 
people to Jesus Christ. This reaching out for souls can be done by using music 
to make other part3 of church services mort meaningful and through the 
effects of the music itself. Let us consider some of the times, methods, and 
kinds of music that may be of help in bringing people to Christ. 

In most of our churches, there are more unsaved people present at the 
Sunday morning worship service than at any other regular service. We should 
take advantage af this opportunity with the right type of music to reach 
out and bring some one else to our Lord. Even as people enter the auditorium 
the piano or the orj^an should! be sounding out the proper kind of music to 
bring about the mood desired for the morning service. Chances are great 
that almost everyone who enters the auditorium has been talking to someone 
else just before entering: the things they have been discussing are widely 
varied in subject matter: Who's gonna win the World Series? What do you 
think of Khrushchev and his pounding on the table? Did you watch the big 
debate on television? 

That little bea;crle of mine is the best rabbit dog in the. country! How 
is Mrs. Smith doing after her operation? Did you see that monstrosity of a 
hat Janie Jones wore to the community club meeting Friday night? Some 
of the people coming in are in an argumentative mood; some are downright 
tickled; some are sad; some are troubled; some are just excited. Music can 
be used to bring these people) into the right condition of mind for them to 
receive and heed the message of the morning. 

The kind of hymns sung, the type of special music the choir sings, and 
the instrumental music, should all fit in with the message to be brought by 
large number of i\u£aved persons, the preacher should preach often on salva- 
tion. 

And the music should help lead the unsaved to Christ. Our hymnals are 
full of songs that can dovetail perfectly with the minister's messages about 
salvation: "There is a green Hill Far Away"; "Nohing but the Blood of Jesus"; 
''Jesus Paid It All"; "There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood"; "When I 
Survey the Wondrous Cross'; and on and on could go the list. 

As for solos and choir numbers we have such songs as: "Have I Grieved 
Thy Holy Spirit?"; "Sweet Peace, the Gift of God's Love"; "Ye Must Be Born 
Again"; "Saved By Grace" "The Lovq of God". And if you want a special 
number to make an unsaved person stop and think, notice the words of this 
one: "Love sent my Saviour to die in my stead; Why should he love me so; 
Meekly to Calvary'is Cross He was Led; Why should He love me so. Why 
should He my Saviour to Calvary go? Why should He love me so?" 



24 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



The invitation hymn offers a wonderful opportunity to use music in 
reaching the unsaved. The specific hymn used should depend on the message 
brought by the speaker. But the number of good hymns which can be used 
for this purpose is long: "Have Thine Own Way, Lord"; ''Out of my Bondage, 
Sorrow, & Night"; ''Only Trust Him"; "Pass Me Not, Gentle Saviour"; 
"Softly and Tenderly"; "Just As I Am"; "Jesus is Tenderly Calling" "Where 
He Leads Me". These hymns should be sung with reverence, with feeling, and 
with enough enthusiam to help spur people to do something. 

And preachers, your music director can do a much better job of selecting 
music if he knows your subject a month ahead. 

Another service in which music can be used in a great v/ay to reach the 
unreached is the revival service. At most revival services almost half the time 
is used in singing or in playing the organ or piano; the opportunities are here 
for using music to lead people to Christ. The right kind of music, sung in the 
right manner, will aid in bringing the unsaved to know Jesus. 

What is the right kind of music? Ahnost any of the hymns in the Broad- 
man, Modern, and Baptist Hymnals — which are about the birth of Christ 
the love of Christ, the crucifixion of Christ, the resurrection of Christ, the 
Saving Grace, etc. — will fit in well in a revival service. Hymns should be 
sung brightly and positively. They should be sung at a speed in keeping with 
the spirit of the words o^f the songs. In each hymn we should try to get 
each person to receive the words and apply them unto himself. All choir num- 
bers ensembles, and solos should be sung so that an unreached person might 
get the story or the message from the music itself or so -that he might be in 
a mood more receptive to the message of the preacher. Choir members 
should be enlisted in getting the unreached to attend the revival meetings — - 
and they should be used in telling others the love of Jesus. 

During the invitation hymn Christians should not only sing earnestly, but 
they should pray that unsaved persons in the congregation might come to 
accept our Lord. Let me invite you to pray earnestly the next time you sing 
an invitation hymn. The results may be so startling that thty might actually 
scare you. 

Radio is another means of using church music to reach tht unreached. 
Our pastors speak quite often over the local radio stations Most of the time 
the preacher. Since Sunday morning services are attended by a comparatively 
they get little or no assistance from music as they attempt to give he gospel 
to the people of this area. Why not have a soloist, an ensemble, or a choir 
from your church go to the radio station the next time your pasor is broad- 
casting; music will reinforce his message and the music itself may lead some- 
one to know Christ. If your choir can't go to the radio station, why not record 
some numbers on your tape recorder and use them. Be sure to record at the 
7^/2 inches per second speed for better quality recording. 

We can do some real reaching in our music schools. The people attending 
music schools are usually devoted Christians; by teaching them the elements 
of good church music and how to use it in our church services, we can reach 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 25 



the unreached through them. But we can do more than that in our music 
schools: by teaching people the meaning of hymns and other music, by telling 
them some of the history of church music, by studying the lives of some of 
our hymn writers, by learning of the music used in Bible Times, these students 
of music will know more about how to use this music — and they will know 
more about winning the lost to the Saviour. 

Church music can be used — and is used to reach out to people who 
may not be reached in any other way. Songs should be — used — and are used — 
to tell the story of Jesus and his death to save us from sin. The human voice 
and the piano and the organ are wonderful instruments for telling the Gospel 
and for persuading others to believe on our Lord and Saviour. 

REPORT ON NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The Ministry of our Baptist Hospital touches every area of our state. 
Last year it served more than 17,000 bed patients, with 150,000 visits being 
made to the clinics and offices. They came for examinations, medical treat- 
ment, skilled surgery, and spiritual guidance. Many of our homes, most of 
our churches, and almost all of our communities have been served by this 
ministry of healing. It touches the family life of about a quarter of a million 
cf our people each year. 

Sickness is no respector of persons of pocket books. It strikes the rich 
and poor alike- the widow, the orphan, the aged. There are times when 
they need such specialized care as that available at our Baptist Hospital. 
The Mother's Day Fund provides money with which our Hospital gives as- 
sistance to those who cannot pay the full cost of their care. Our Hospital 
almost doubles cur gifts with matching funds from welfare agencies and 
other gifts. In addition to this, the medical staff gives its services with- 
out charge to all service patients, except for available insurance payments. 

Probably we should ask ourselves if we as Christians should provide 
such a ministry for our needy, sick neighbors. Jesus and the New Testament 
writers give us the smswer. But do we really want such a ministry? It can- 
not be provided except at great cost. Our Hospital receives about 3 S-4% 
of our Co-operative Program funds for payments on the buildings, purchase 
of expensive equipment, such as heart-lung machines, and for the Depart- 
ment of Pastoral Care. Our Mother's Day Fund provides the money to help 
pay the hospital bills of needy, sick persons. The amount of this fund jdeter- 
mines for the most part the amount of help our Hospital can give. 

If we are serious about this ministry which was so close to the heart 
of our Lord, and want our Hospital to give help when our people need it, 
we are going to have to become serious about our giving to the Mother's 
Day Fund. Our Hospital is facing a grave financial problem, and if it is 
to give free service we are going to have to contribute the money to finance 
the program. 

The only way we can support this work is to plan for it, to make 
somebody in each church responsible for it, to let our people know about the 
need, and to challenge them to give of their means. Some of our churches 



26 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



over the state have been doing- this, and our people have demonstrated that 
when this is done they will provide the necessary support. We come to ask 
you to do it in your €hurch-not for the hospital, but for sick people who 
are in need. 

REPORT OF THE BAPTIST TRAINING UNION 

The Great Commission contains two practical admonitions relevent to 
the Christian Faith. One is the challenge to witness to and win the lost to 
a saving faith in Jesus Christ. The other is to teach and train those who 
have been won to Christ. The Baptists Training Union of the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention has both of these objectives in mind as it presents its pro- 
gram year by year. Here in the Green River Association we are anxious that 
those outside the fold be won, but we are likewise anxious that after they 
are won that they be taught to grow into mature Christian faith. 

One of our greatest dangers or temptations is to reach a person and 
then fail to enlist and train that person. The theme of the Baptist Training 
Union is **in Church Membership". It is the one organization in which every 
member may take a part in the work of the organization. 

Where do we go to find our much needed workers for our local churches? 
To whom can we look for the tithes to support the various phases of the 
Kingdom's work? Where will we find the trained workers needed? There 
can be but one answer, namely The Baptist Training Union. 

Our Training Unions are out of proportion with our church rolls and also 
our Sunday School rolls. Far too many are receiving no training or prepara- 
tion while the fields are white already unto harvest and the laborers are few. 

In the Baptist Training Union one is trained and taught to exemplify 
in his life the true meaning of New Testament Church Membership, which 
is characterized by a three-fold loyalty: First, loyolty to Christ; second, 
loyalty to their own local church; third, loyalty to the large church program 
of our great denomination. 

Baptist training Union work in Green River Baptist Association for 
this past year of 1959-1960 has now become history. But it leaves us with 
many pleasant memories. When our minds review the work, we can clearly 
see that we have not been alone. But that God has led us every step of the 
way with His blessings ever upon us. 

My heart has been warmed this year by the cooperation of our Mission- 
ary, and Pastors, and church people alike, and by this good team work. Bap- 
tist Training Union has made a steady growth, and we feel sure that (in- 
dividuals have been blessed and the local churches have been strengthened. 

We have 28 Churches in the Association reporting Training Unions 
against 23 for last year. We have a grand Total Membership of 2300 this 
year against 1892 for last year. The net increase in Training Unions was 5 
and the net increase in enrollment was 508. We have had an average at- 
tendance this year of 1485 against 1194 for last year or a net increase of 
291. 

We are happy that we now have the two groups, Rutherford and Polk, 
fully organized. The Rev. W. T. Luckadoo is Director of the Polk County 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST' ASSOCIATION 27 



group and we wish to express to him our very deep appreciation for a job 
*'well done". We ha^-e had four mass meetings in the Rutherford group and 
3 mass meetings in the Polk Group. "M" night was the combined meeting 
of year. 

This year has ssen some progress in the Training Union work but this 
progress is not to be compared with the challenge and work that remains 
to be done here in th 2 Green River Baptist Association. We are grateful to all 
whose efforts have contributed to this progress.

REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE FOR 1960 

The Executive Committee of the Green River Baptist Association met

uary 26th. Due to bad weather many churches were not represented, however 
all organizations reported. Rev. J. B. Jones for the Missions Committee, Rev. 
Earl Poole for the Sunday School, and Rev. Zeb Baker for the Training 
Union. 

The second meeting was held at Calvary Church on March 28th. 
All organizations reported. Rev. H. V. Ray was elected representative for

it was adopted. 

The September meeting was held on September 26th at Mill Spring 
Church. Rev. R. E. Thompson presented a report from the planning and 
Survey committee which was appointed to find out how much a home for 
the missionary would cost. Plans for the home were presented by brother 
R. E. Thompson who also presented a motion which was adopted, that each 
church be ask to taka special offering or set aside a certain amount in addi-

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

Baptist Homes for the Aging came into being on Mareh 16th. 1951 with 
one home in Winston Salem which was given the name Resthaven. Rev. 
J. M. Hayes Sr. became the first Superintendent and served in this capacity 
until he retired on July 1st, 1960. He was succeeded by Rev. William A. 
Poole. Due to Mr. Hayes' censecration to the task and his untiring efforts 
the homes have grown to three. In addition to Resthaven there is the 
Headquarters Home in Winston Salem and the Albermarle home located 
in Albemarle. It is hoped that the proposed new Hamilton Home, in Hamilton, 
N. C. can be started in the near future, which will add facilitiesi for about 
30 additional residents. 

At present there are 106 residents in the three homes; Resthaven 20; 
Albemarle 34; Headquarters 52. Sixty applicants are on the waiting list 
at present, and new applications are coming in daily. The only reason 
these applicants are not admitted to the homes is the lack of space. Let 
us, therefore, dedicate ourselves to the task of making more space avail- 
able at the earliest possible moment. 

During the fiscal year, Oct. 1, 1959 to Aug. 1, 1960 the homes received 
$82,521.20 from the churches of North Carolina. Of this amount $76,352.70 
was contributed through the special day offering in February. This was 
far short of the goal of $200,000. 

The staff and the residents of the homes were saddened by the deaths 
of Miss Lillie Herring in October, Mrs. Mary Holder in April, Mr. T. J. 
Castevens in June, and Mrs. Annie Smith in July. 

Rev. W. A. Poole has taken up the task relinquished by Rev. Mr. Hayes 
and he is carrying on in a marvelous way. 

May we as Pastors and churches support him in this worthy task of 
caring for the aging in our state.

BAPTISTS CHILDREN'S 
HOMES OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. 

Directly or indirectly, more than 1000 children were served by the 
Children's Homes during the past year. 



GREEN RIVElt BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 29 



The three Homes are: Mills Home at Thomasville, with 311 children, 
Kennedy Home at Kinston, with 165, and Odum Home at Pembroke, with 
24 children. 

Some 160 children are placed in Poster Homes and 40 others are 
assisted by Mother^s Aid. Case work supervision is afforded 30 college 
students annually. 

Opportunities for Christian commitment and spiritual growth are 
afforded on the campuses, in the cottages, and through the Churches and 
private homes engaf?ed in serving thest children. 

The Baptist Child Care Program is supported through the Cooperative 
Program 31.5 per cent, Thanksgiving Offerings 31.1 per cent, Once-A-Month 
Offerings 21.9 per cent. Special Gifts and Endowment 15.5 per cent. 

Many children whom we should have served, have been denied a 
Christian home, because the income for the past three years has not been 
sufficient to meet minimum needs. An increased Thanksgiving Offering 
this year would bo in keeping with Christ's words: "Suffer the little 
children to come unto me." 

During the 75 years North Carolina Baptists have been caring for home- 
less and dependent children, more than 8,000 children have been afforded 
some of life's best opportunities. The need for such services increases as 
time goes on. 

North Carolina Baptists will continue to love and serve dependent 
children only through your continued interest and increasing support.

REPORT ON ASSOCIATIONAL SUNDAY SCHOOL 

Sunday School work in our churches this year has been better than 
ever. We had four Associational Sunday School meetings this year and using 
the two county system we have reached almost twice as many people in these 
meetings We hope to reach every member of every church in our associa- 
tion; but our main objective in the Sunday school work is to reach the super- 
intendents and officers of every chui-ch. One of he greatest needs, if not 
the greatest is that we have superintendents and teachers that are first of 
all praying people, in the will of tht Lord, filled with the spirit of the Lord, 
filled with the word, and have the best possible training. We hope that every 
pastor will see to it that their sunday school workers will have these five 
things mentioned. This year our Association is reporting 41 cJiurches with 
41 Sunday schools. Our enrollment this year is 7,184, with an average at- 
tendance of of 4,515. 22 churches reported January Bible Study, 39 bible 
schools were held, with 2,969 enrolled. One church in our Association, Round 
Hill, reached the Standard of excellence. 

e 800 Training Awards. 

• 30 churches obstrving January Bible Study. 

• A 5 % increase in Sunday School enrollment. 

• 11 Stardaid Schools.

In order to accomplish these goals we must have the cooperation of 
every church, pastor, Supertintendent and teacher.

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

We have no new Brotherhoods to tell you about this year, but I believe 
that we have made great progress in the work. We have chosen a new As- 
sociational president and new Associational officers to help him in his work. 
We now have eleven Brotherhoods with a total membership of 251. Two 
Associational Brotherhood meetings were held this year, v/ith good atten- 
dance. 

We also had a good number attending the Regional meeting in Shelby. 

I wish to make my last appeal, as your president, to the pastors and 
men of the churches that do not have a Brotherhood, to call your new pre- 
sident, Jennings Gamble, or our Associational Missionary, to help you or- 
ganize one in your church, that you might carry on the work of the Lord 
in a fuller way than ever before.

1960 REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATIONS ON THE BIBLICAL 
RECORDER AND OTHER BAPTIST LITERATURE 

This has been a year of change and transition for the Biblical Recorder, 
your Baptist state paper since 1833. 

On January 1, J. Marse Grant became editor, succeeding Dr. L. L. 
Carpenter who retired after 17 years in the editor's chair. Editor Grant 
came to the Recorder after 10 years as editor of Charity and Children. 

Since the first of the year, a number of changes have been made in the 
Recorder, including larger type and full-page pictures on the cover. In a 
study made by a nationally-known professor of journalism, the Recorder was 
rated among the top three state papers in the Southern Baptist Convention. 
The Recorder staff will not be satisfied until it rates No. 1 among the 27 
state papers. 

For the price of a 3c or 4c postage stamp, the Recorder can come into 
your home each week. For only $1.50 a year, or 3c week, the Recorder can 
be sent to every family in your church. For a 4c stamp each week, or $2.00 
a year, you can receive the paper in the Club Plan of four or more subscri- 
bers in the same church. 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 31 



Certainly our Baptist families are worth 3c or 4c a week. Most of us 
subscribe to at least one daily paper at a cost of more than $20 a year. 
For one-tenth of that amount, or less, you can get the Recorder and never 
miss the small amount it costs. With the many crucial issues coming up in 
the world almost daily, it is imperative that Baptists be informed about 
them. The best source is your Baptist state paper. 

A continuing campaign is being made to put the Recorder in more 
church budgets. Detcons and finance committees are urged to consider this 
at the earliest possible moment. As every pastor knows, an informed mem- 
bership is essential if a church makes progress. 

Make no mistake about it. The printed page is going to win the battle 
for men's minds and hearts. The great movements of this world depend 
heavily on printer's ink to get their messages across. Baptists can do no 
less if we are to stay in this battle to win the loyalties of men and women, 
boys and girls. 

In this crucial year in American history, the following quotation is so 
pertinent as we think of the importance of the Biblical Recorder and other 
Baptist publications: "If religious literature is not widely circulated among 
the masses. in this covintry, I do not know what is to become of us as a 
nation. If truth be not diffused, error will be; if God and His Word are 
not received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy; if the evange- 
lical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious 
literatious will; if the power of the Gospel is not felt through the length 
and breadth of cur land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, 
corruption and darkness will reign." 

Rev. Virgil Morrow 

REPORT ON AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Outreach through American Bible Society 

The Bible is the book for everyone, but not everyone possesses the 
Book. This is both the conviction and the challenge of the American Bible 
Society. 

This conviction is inherent in the Book itself, because here God disclosed 
Himself and spoke His Word fully in Jesus, His Son, the Divine Word, who 
attests to its genuineness. It is a conviction verified by the history of 
the Christian Churc'i, which translated, preserved and copied the Book, read 
it publicly and expounded it for worship and instruction. It is the conviction 
of devout men and women who from age to age decover what God proved 
Himself to be in the pages of this Book, and who found a personal relation- 
ship with the living God as revealed in Jesus Christ. 

The Challenge is great. There are still millions who either do not possess 
the Bible or, if they do possess it, have not as yet -discovered its message of 
life. There is and estimated 690 to 720 million persons fifteen years and 
over that can not read if they had the Bible translated in their native tongue. 

During 1959 the American Bible Society distributed: 

- 1,114,647 Bibles 

'^ 1,846,267 New Testaments 

■" 14,690,003 Gospels and other portions. This in 296 languages. 



32 GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



This in 296 languages. 

The American Bible Society helps to translate the Bible, publish with- 
out note or comment, distributes without profit, often below cost, for world- 
wide mission work. To this task the American Bible Society gives them- 
selves.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

We live in a day in which a formal education in necessary, if not abso- 
lutely essential. Baptist through the years have believed in and promoted 
Christian Education. North Carolina Baptists promote a program of Chris- 
tian Education much wider in scope than just their seven colleges. In our 
local churches most of our activities has as its aim Christian .education. This 
is true also of jour activities in our Association, State, and southern Baptist 
Organizations. We along with other baptists of other states, operate and 
maintain seven Seminaries, we also have Fruitland in our State meeting an 
important need. Baptist as a whole use the public schools for formal education 
of its youth up to the college level. On the college level we believe there is 
a definate advantage in attending a christian college. In North Carolina we 
have seven colleges. Mars. Hill, Gardner-Webb, Wingate, Campbell, Chowan, 
Junior Colleges, and Wake Forest and Meredith are our Senior Colleges. Each 
of these institutions are governed by boards of trustees appointed by the 
state convention. Last year 8,100 students were enrolled. Total operation 
cost was Ten Million Dollars. Of this amount about 500,000. came through 
the cooperative program, plus about 600,000. for capitol needs. 

Interest in our colleges is growing. A number of committees have been 
appointed to study the colleges and their needs. Each has made or will make 
specific recommendations to the state convention. Three of our Junior col- 
leges have been given the go signal to expand to senior status; the other 
two to expand as fast as they can and deem wise. All of us remember the 
great increase in brith rate during world war 11. These babies are now 
approaching the college age and we must provide room for them. Our col- 
leges at the present time are operating at full capacity and more students 
asking for admittance. If we are to serve our people we must provide more 
buildings. We see increasing prospects for enrollment for years to come. 
Along with all our expansion needs comes a great need of increased faculty 
and higher salaries in order to hold competent leadership. Each of our col- 
leges should be endowed during the years so as to insure continued efficient 
operation. 

Our Baptist colleges at the present are only enrolling 1 out of 5 of 
our Baptist students. Since we think a christian education is of value to 
the pupil, church and community, as well as a nation as a whole, it is import- 
ant that we make a greater effort to assure every student an opportunity 
to go to a Baptist college.

THE RADIO AND TELEVISION COMMISSION 

6248 Camp Bowie Blvd. — Fort Worth, Texas 
PAUL M. STEVENS, Director 

The Radio and Television Commission is a missionary service organiza- 
tion for the Southern Baptist Convention. It preaches the gospel on radio 
and television and through the printed page. At the same time, the Com- 
mission offers assistance to pastors, missionaries, teachers, and anyone elso 
interested in using the airwaves as a method of telling lost people of sal- 
vation through Jesus Christ. There are three main facts to the work: 

Radio Evangelism 

The Commission now produces five weekly programs for use on radio. 
The music and message of each program is of network quality. 

The Baptist Hour (on 452 stations in 34 states and 5 countries) — Dr. 
Herschel H. Hobbs, pastor of First Baptist Church, Oklahoma City will 
resume as program speaker in October, 1960. It has been on the air for 
nearly two decades, using outstanding Southern Baptist preachers and musi- 
cians to present an evangelistic, Christ-centered message. 

La Hora Bautista (on 20 stations in 5 states and 4 countries) — Spanish 
program using the same format as the English version with different per- 
sonalities and music. 

"Master Control" (on 127 stations in 35 states plus 200 AFN* stations 
around tht world) — a unique, half -hour concept of wholesome variety enter- 
tainment with a strong base of Christian inspiration. It combines the best 
of secular music and discussions with testimonies of well-know Christians 
in all areas of contemporary life. 

International Sunday School Lesson (on 75 stations) — quarter hour 
of helpful insights into the weekly international Sunday school lesson. It is 
taught by Dr. Clifon J. Allen, editor, author, and Bible scholar. 

The Chapel Upstairs (on 8 stations) — quarter-hour daily devotional 
program, combining brief messages by Southern Baptist speakers and music 
by the Baptist Hour Choir. It is used in varying situations, daily, weekly, and 
monthly. , 

Television Evangelism 

The preparation of The Answer series involves script writing and film- 
ing, both of which must be done with the end aim of providing an effective 
evangelistic tool. The films are produced in Hollywood, Calif., by Family 
Films, Inc., to insure Southern Baptists that the resultant product will be 
able to successfully compete with secular films on TV. Each film will be 
seen by an estimated 50 million viewers and it must properly represent our 
Lord and Southern Baptists. "Televangelism, 1960" was again highly suc- 
cessful as an aid to local church effort to reach the unchurched, unsaved 
individual on the home front. More than 6,000 churches participated directly 
and an estimated 75,000 individuals took an active part.

ordinated promotion possible in state Baptist papers, local dailies, by mail, 
and in person. 

"Televangelism" has been termed the greatest singlt advance in evange- 
lism since the institution of personal witnessing. The Answer is tht most 
spectacular program produced by the Commission, and by far the most expen- 
sive. At the same time, it reaches literally millionai of individuals in the in- 
timate confines of their homes, causing them to consider the most important 
aspects of life. This program has been directly responsible for turning men 
and women from sin to the abundant Christian life. No actual monetary 
value can be assigned to such an activity as it renders its valuable service 
to the Kingdom of God both in this country and abroad (Hawaii, Australia, 
New Zealand).

1960 SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

I am happy to report that we had a very successful season at our camp 
this year. There were 329 boys who attended our R. A. camps and 417 
girls who attended our G. A. camps, 633 attended other types of meetings 
during the summer making a total of 1,379. Hundreds visited for one or 
more services. Tht Blue Ridge Association had more organized activity at 
the camp than any other Association. They conducted R. A., G. A. and 
Y. W. A. over night camps and a Sunbeam Day meeting with a combined 
attendance of nearly 400. 

Activity at camp included Ranking study (for R. A.'s) forward steps 
(for G A.'s), Mission study, Worship, and recreation. Campers had a deep 
spiritual experience and enjoyable time and expressed their desire to return 
next year. Many applied for a work scholorship for next year. 

650 made some type of decision for Christ including 58 professions 
of faith. 364 were star campers, 186 honor campers. 

We had a consecrated and effecient staff of workers whoi contributed 
greatly to the success of the camp. Johnny Euloe of Gastonia, a. minist- 
erial student and Huffman a teacher at the Deaf School of Morganton were 
very capable assistant camp directors. Missionaries on furlough were very 
helpful in presentmg an interesting program. 

Improvements were made during the spring and summer. One memorial 
cabin was added his year. Two or three other buildings will be added before 
camp opens next year. The lake is being improved and beautified. The road 
is also to be improved. 

They said, it couldn't be done but the camp has operated in the black 
for three years. However, we are depending on interested churches and 
individuals for funds to develop the camp and to pay off a $400.00 indebt- 
ness that we have on the building and etc. It is our hope that more of our 
churches will put $25.00 to $200.00 in their budget to retire the debt and 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



help in completing: the camp. A few have worked hard to get this camp 
started. We pray that the way that God has blessed the camp will inspire 
many more to help us in the future.

RESOLUTIONS 

Your Committee on Resolutions submits the following*: 

1. That we express to the Pleasant Hill Church, the Oak Springs Church, 
and the Cooper's Gap Church our appreciation of their gracious hos- 
pitality in affording us excellent meeting places, fitting accommodations, 
delicious food and christian welcome. 

2. That we thank the Program Committee for the stimulating presenta- 
tion of the work of our Baptist people and for the persons giving of 
their time and talent in bringing us needed information and inspiration. 

3. That we thank the press for giving our assembling together good 
publicity. 

4. That we urge our people to take back to their churches the information 
given and lift the standard of their work by using it. 

5. That we recognize the tremendous need of christian education in a 
time like ours and that we use our hemes, our churches and our church 
schools in a more dedicated way, to bring to our children the eternal 
truths of the Bible. 

6. That we guard closely the great principles of our Baptist forefathers 
and not lose these foundations of truth through complacency and com- 
promise. That we stand for the right of the individual to worship God 
according to the dictates of his own conscious. That we oppose with 
all our powers any organization that dewards control of the individuals 
thinking. 



REPORT OF BUILDING COMMITTEE 

1. We recommend that the lot designated by Mr. Thad Pendergrass located 
on Freeman St. in Hillerest, Rutherfordton, be the location for the As- 
sociational Missionary Hom^e.

REPORT ON EVANGELISM 

The first fundamental essential in our Christian work is to make dis- 
ciples. Therefore, evangelism is the very heart and care of the greati Chris- 
tian program. 

There never has been a time in the history of our land when the 
Gospel of Jesus Christ was needed and more urgent than today. Still, many 
Christians have not sensed this, and are complacent. 

Southern Baptists have been blessed by God, seemingly, as much or 
more than any people in ail Christian history. However, along with these 
blessings there are inescapable responsiblilities, we as Christians must share 
with those who are not Christian. We are the children of light and we must 
share with those who sit in darkness. 

Our association has done much in evangelism this past year. Nearly all 
churches participated in a simultaneous revival this past spring. Nearly all 
of our churches have ha(i two revivals. We have had 357 baptisms, compared 
with 352 last year. 

We are proud for what has been done, but our hearts are solemized 
when we find, according to statistics, that there remains yet many people 
who have not been reached. May we go forth into this new associational 
year with new courage and a greater zeal to do the work in each church 
that lies before us. 

As chairman of evangelism, I have attended with our missionary all 
evangelistic clinics within our region and association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
E. C. Revis 
Chairman of Evangelism .: 

MOTION PERTAINING TO BUILDING 

Brother Mayberry made a motion that the Association request the Execu- 
tive Committee, along with the heads of the departments, to set aside a 
special Sunday when each church will be ask to take a special offering to go 
as a down payment on the Home for the Missionary. Also that the mission- 
ary be liberated as much as possible two weeks prior to thei special Day to 
inform, the churches relative to the Building of the home for the Missionary- 
Motion adopted. 

ADVISORY COMMITTEE REPORT 

Upon the request to the Rock Springs Baptist church the Advisory 
Council met at Southern Church July 28th., 1960 to examine Bobby, Scoggins 
as to his fitness to be ordained by the Calvary Baptist Church of which he 
is a member. Members of the council present were J. G. Blanton, Richard 
Smith, R. F. Mayberry. Others ^present were Zeb. Baker, A. Graham Brooks, 
Clifford Bradshaw, Bobby Scoggins. After examining Brother Scoggins as 
to his Christian Experience, Call to the Ministary, Bible Knowledge and Doc- 
trine, and to his Baptist Beliefs in Missions, etc., the Council recommended 
that the ".Calvary Church proceed with the ordination.

Bobby Scoggins was ordained to the work of the Gospel Ministry as 
Pastor of the Rock Springs Baptist Church by the Calvary Baptist Church 
August 14, 1960.

Alcoholic Beverages are still our Enemy No. 1 in this country. Some 
camparisons. America now has 193,467 bartenders as compared to 167,471 
clergymen, of all denominations, according to the Federal Census Bureau. 
This is a 26,000 majority for the bartenders. 

More money is spent for strong drink in America than is given to all 
religious and philanthropic purposes. 

Officers estimate that at least half of all Highway deaths in our State 
and Nation are caused by strong drink. 

The American People spend more than ten billion dollars yearly for 
strong drink. We .spend more for strong drink than any other country on 
Earth and the sad part is, the amount is increasing as the years go by. 

Total sales in N. C. A B C Liquor stores during the past August amount- 
ed to $6,379,724, an increase of 8.3 per cent ovei-' August of last year. 

Mecklenburg County and the fair city of Charlotte led the State with 
total receipts of $982,013, nearly a Million dollars in one month spent to 
destroy human lives, character to make homes unhappy and children go 
hungry. Mecklenburg County also has the distinction — of having more 
crimes than any other county in N. C. The per capita rate is high. The 
more strong drink is consumed in any city, or town, the more crime there 
is. Strong drink and crime are twin brothers. 

A noted Mountaineer, drunkard and liquor peddler near Sparta, N. C. 
last September 21 killed a passing motorist with a high powered rifle. No 
cause except he was drunk. A friend of the dead man passed by the home 
of the mountaineer soon after the man was killed and killed the murderer, 
after he tried to kill others while drunk. 

The liquor, wine and beer crowd are doing all they can to increase the 
sale of their ''Poisonous stuff" by spending $400,000,000 a year for advertis- 
ing in this country. They are "Lulling" the American people to the idea 
that drinking is popular and one must drink to be a good sport. Our youth 
on TV see daily," The Beer that Made Milkwaukee Famous". 

It's time the good people of American woke up to the evils «0'f strong 
drink." Unless the church destroys the liquor traffic, it will destroy the 
church and our youth. 

Let me urge all of our pastors to preach a sermon against the evils of 
strong drink at least twice a year. Remember, strong drink is our enemy num- 
ber one.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

This year Woman's Missionary Union has as its watchword: ''For the 
love of Christ constraineth us." 2 Corinthians 5:14. The word constrain 



GREEN RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 41 



means to compel or force. What greater power could compel women to work 
for Christ than that of love? When we review in our limited way? the love 
which Christ proved for us, what less can we do than to give ourselves in 
service for him? Through woman's Missionary Union women and young people 
are seeking to serve him through prayer, through gifts, through study, 
through evangelism, and through training in order that we may carry out the 
commands that he left us. We study that we may know the conditions that 
prevail in the world so that we may pray intelligently. When we know of 
the needs of other peoples, we want to give of our prayers, our money, and 
some of themselves to alleviate those needs. 

With our eyes open to conditions right around us, and with information 
that is in our own church offices, we can easily find those that are in both 
physical and spiritual need at our very doors. We minister to these also. 

Woman's Missionary Union promotes the entire program of the Southern 
Baptist Convention. In the last quarter of the calendar year we study for- 
eign missions. The first week in December is set aside as a week of prayer 
for this object, and then we take an offering which we know as the Lottie 
Moon Christmas Offering. A very small amount of this goes for the salaries 
■of missionaries. Instead it is used to build churches, seminaries and other 
structures needed to our work and to take care of promotional projects. 

The first week in March is set aside as a week of prayer for Home 
Missions and that is followed by a special offering for Home Missions known 
as the Annie Armstrong Offering. This pormotes the work of missions here 
in our own home land of the United States. 

In June we have a season of prayer for objects here in the state chiefly 
objects that the women only support. This is known as the Heck-Jones Offer- 
ing. 

Again in September we have a season of prayer for State Missions and 
make a fourth special offering for the promotion of work in our own state 
only. 

Each day we pray for our missionaries by following our calendar of 
prayer. Thus we link our gifts with our prayers in order that we may be 
obedient to that love which Christ gave us and demonstrated so undeniably 
at Calvary. 

Last year, which just closed, two of our women's societies made the 
Honor rating and two made Advanced rating in our W. M. U. Aims for 
Advancement. Three Intermediate Girl's Auxiliaries made the Advanced rat- 
ing, and so did two Junior GA's. Junior one madei approved rating. But six 
Junior GA's made the Honor rating. The Sunbeam Bands did very well too 
as one Primary and one Beginner band made Honor rating and two Primaries 
and one Beginner made the Advanced. This denotes an improvement over 
last year's report although there are a few that have not come in yet.
